LA PLATA, Md. — A Charles County judge on Friday sentenced a man to a year in prison for violating Governor Larry Hogan’s executive order limiting large gatherings.

Shawn Marshall Myers, 41, was convicted of two counts of Failure to Comply with an Emergency Order.

Back on March 22 officers received complaints of a large party going on at Myers's home on Lukes Lane in Hughesville.

After an initial argument with police, Myers agreed to break-up the party which included more than 50 people.

Five days later, officers returned for another complaint.

This time Myers refused to cooperate, resulting in his arrest.

Upon his release from jail, Myers will have to serve three years of unsupervised probation.
