Leggett confident Montgomery Co. curfew can pass
ROCKVILLE, Md. (AP) - 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.
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.
