Discussion Groups

November Discussion Groups focus on Bail Reform and Criminal Justice-Consensus

November Discussion Groups will discuss the pretrial procedures of the criminal justice system in Maryland. What happens after a suspect is apprehended and before that person faces a trial that determines guilt or innocence? What is the role of bail and pretrial detention? Are there alternatives to jailing defendants before their guilt is established? What criteria should be used to determine which defendants are locked up and which are released until trial? Discussion Groups will seek consensus on some recommendations for reform. This is a state study to be used for arriving at League positions to enable advocacy.
See LWVMD Bail Reform Study. Everyone is welcome. Free.
