Former Candidate For Md. House Of Delegates Indicted

A former candidate for the Maryland House of Delegates has been indicted on felony theft, perjury and other charges relating to campaign spending.

State Prosecutor Emmet Davitt announced the 38-count indictment Friday against Steven Wyatt.

The indictment alleges Wyatt made unauthorized ATM withdrawals from the North County High School Athletic Boosters Association's bank account to benefit his campaign. In one case, he allegedly charged $1,300 on an association debit card at a restaurant. Wyatt had been president of the association.

Jim Keatts, his attorney, says the case is not as clear cut as it might seem. He says his client is waiting for the judicial process to run its course.

Wyatt was defeated in the 2014 Democratic primary for delegate in District 32 in Anne Arundel County.
