The June 21 report, which analyzed pretrial jail populations in Prince George’s County before and after bail reform was implemented in 2017, suggests that while cash bails have decreased, judges have opted to hold more people without bond instead of releasing them on their own recognizance.
The increase in “no-bail” holds violates the spirit of rules that the Maryland Court of Appeals adopted to address concerns over racial and financial inequities in the cash-bail system, public defenders and advocates say.
Publishers Notes: ECI is STILL under lock down. inmates are being fed cereal and bologna sandwiches. There is no A/C in the cells and many have not been able to take showers for some 5 days at a time. I don't care what anyone says, this is inhumane. Governors O'malley and Hogan have completely ignored ECI.
