Report of the Bail System Task Force

Group: Maryland Courts

URL: http://courts.state.md.us/bailbond/index.html

Description

The bail system is a critical factor enabling the release of defendants who otherwise might remain in detention due to ineligibility for release on personal recognizance or release on other conditions. The bail system is complex and involves courts, other units of the Judiciary, and other stakeholders in the criminal justice system. Concern has been expressed that the Judiciary's practices and procedures may not be effective in implementing the current laws governing the bail system in Maryland. For this reason, Chief Judge Robert M. Bell signed an administrative order creating a task force to review the laws, practices and procedures governing bondsmen and bail bonds, and make recommendations for improvement.
