Former Anne Arundel County Executive John Leopold has paid a $75,000 fine for misconduct.

Court records show he paid the fine late last month, the Capital of Annapolis reported.

Leopold resigned in February and served 30 days in jail and two weeks of home detention for two counts of criminal misconduct. Leopold forced members of his security detail to perform campaign work and another county employee to empty his urinary catheter bag, prosecutors said.

As part of the sentence, Judge Dennis Sweeney ordered Leopold to pay a $100,000 fine to the state, or a $75,000 fine to the county.

Leopold is completing 400 hours of community service at the Anne Arundel Food Bank.
