Governor O'Malley Applauds Senate Action on Pre-Trial Reform in Maryland

Statement

By:
Date:
Location: Annapolis, MD

Governor O'Malley today released the following statement after a 3rd-reader majority vote in the state Senate on SB 973, which establishes a path to long-term pre-trial reform in Maryland:

"I commend President Miller, Chairman Frosh, and the overwhelming majority of the Maryland Senate for advancing Senate Bill 973, a bill that would bring the State into compliance with the Richmond decision while also streamlining and modernizing our pre-trial system. Using an evidence-based, objective screening tool to assess risk of failure to appear or risk to public safety, it will speed the release of low-risk offenders and improve the quality of decision-making during the pre-trial process. I look forward to working with the House of Delegates in the days ahead as we continue our effort to reach consensus on the need for reform."
