State Del. Rick Impallaria has been charged with multiple counts of theft and misconduct in office.
The charges, filed Wednesday in Anne Arundel County Circuit Court, center on allegations that Impallaria misused state funds involving a personal cottage and a district office in Essex.
The Republican lawmaker represents parts of Baltimore and Harford counties. Reached by phone, Impallaria said, “I have no comment,” and hung up.
The charges were filed by the Office of the State Prosecutor, which handles cases of public corruption.
