Drunk Driving, Gun Charges Emerge in Council Race
My first story over on Patch.com:
Two weeks before the Nov. 2 General Election, two County Council candidates in District 3 are each explaining past run-ins with the law.
Todd Huff, a Lutherville Republican, and Benjamin Sutley, a Baldwin Democrat, both said their records of arrests and court actions are 15 to 20 years old and are not representative of the people they are today.
Court records and documents of expunged court cases show that Huff, 42, had three cases against him, including one for leaving the scene of an accident in Anne Arundel County, one for having a gun in his car and a third for passing a $500 bad check.
Sutley, a 42-year-old attorney, was arrested twice for driving under the influence when he was 19 and 22.
The two are competing in the District 3 race to replace Councilman Bryan McIntire, a Republican who served four terms.
