State Sen. Ulysses S. Currie is behind closed doors with the Joint Committee on Legislative Ethics at the Miller Senate Office Building in Annapolis.
The senator arrived at the hearing room about noon with his lawyer, former Judge Joseph F. Murphy Jr. The panel is investigating ethics violations that the defense for Currie, a Prince George's County Democrat, admitted during his federal trial last year on extortion and bribery charges. Currie was acquitted, but Senate President Thomas V. Mike Miller referred the ethics matters to the committee.
Committee deliberations by law are confidential until it reports its findings to the Senate.
