Teen Curfew Closer in Montgomery County

Montgomery County Executive Ike Leggett says he is confident that a bill designed to establish a youth curfew has enough support to pass the county council, although a vote may not come for several weeks.

Leggett on Tuesday met with council members to discuss the plan. During the meeting, Leggett pointed to a large fight in Silver Spring in July that involved about 70 people and led to a woman being stabbed.

The proposed measure would ban anyone under 18 in public places starting at midnight on weekends and 11 p.m. during the week. First offenders would be fined $100.

The plan is strongly opposed by Democratic Councilman Phil Andrews, who heads the committee that is scheduled to hold a work session on the bill on Thursday.

No vote is expected until at least November.
