Judge Recuses Himself From Bail Bondsman’s Hearing

A court hearing in a case against a local bail bondsman was postponed Monday when a judge recused himself due to a conflict of interest.

Washington County Circuit Judge Daniel P. Dwyer said he could not hear the case against Gregory Lehman Toms “for reasons personal to me and my family.”

Toms, 54, of 19932 Lemuel Lane in Boonsboro, was indicted in June on charges of possession of an explosive/incendiary device with intent to create a destruction device, possession of black powder in excess of 5 pounds, transporting a handgun in a vehicle, possession of a stolen firearm, theft of less than $1,000 and possession of marijuana, according to Washington County Circuit Court records.

The indictment came as the result of a search of Toms’ home on June 2, Cpl. Greg Alton of the Washington County Sheriff’s Department has said.

The case was scheduled for a hearing Monday on motions by the defendant to suppress evidence and to dismiss the charges of explosive device possession, black powder possession and transporting a handgun in a vehicle, court records show.
