Ulysses Currie, Indicted Md. state senator, wants passport back
ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - Attorneys for indicted state Sen. Ulysses Currie are trying to get his passport back temporarily so he can attend a conference in Canada.
Currie's lawyers made the request Friday in U.S. District Court filings. U.S. District Judge Richard Bennett has not yet released a decision.
Currie, a Prince George's County Democrat, gave up his passport as a condition of his release. Currie's attorneys say he is scheduled to attend the Annual Meeting of the Council of State Governments next month in Halifax, Nova Scotia.
Currie attorney Joseph Evans says he's optimistic the request will be approved.
Currie is charged with accepting bribes from Shoppers Food Warehouse and lying to federal investigators. He has pleaded not guilty, and his trial is scheduled to begin Sept. 26.
