Md. civil rights chief convicted of drug charge
BALTIMORE | A jury has convicted the civil rights chief at the Maryland attorney general’s office of misdemeanor possession of marijuana.
Mr. Snowden was arrested on the marijuana charge after a vehicle he was in was pulled over for a broken tail light in April with a co-defendant. The co-defendant, Anthony Hill, pleaded guilty in June, saying the drugs were his.
Mr. Snowden took a leave of absence in April to pursue a lawsuit in a separate matter.
