breaking-newsUPDATE: According to ABC2, Dwyer has already appealed the sentence and his jail sentence has been postponed for 30 days while the appeal is heard.

Dwyer has 48 hours to appeal the sentence.  Absent an appeal, he is to report to jail on Thursday. Dwyer’s lawyer requested a probation before judgment (PBJ) sentence because it was Dwyer’s first offense. The judge refused saying it was a “tragedy in the making.” 

Delegate Don Dwyer has been sentenced to 30 days in prison, fined $1000, and given 1 year supervised probation for the driving a boat under the influence last summer.  At the time, Dwyer’s blood alcohol content was three times the legal limit and the lawmaker admitted that he had been drinking prior to operating his vessel.

More details to follow.
