Amending Article XV, Section 2 of the Maryland Constitution) Changes the point at which an elected official charged with certain crimes is automatically suspended or removed from office. Under existing law, an elected official who is convicted or pleads no contest is suspended and is removed only when the conviction becomes final. Under the amended law, an elected official is suspended
when found guilty and is removed when the conviction becomes final or when the elected official pleads guilty or no contest.
