It's up to Maryland leaders to bring real fairness to the state's bail system
from The Washington Post
Maryland Attorney General Brian E. Frosh (D) got the ball rolling for bail reform with a legal opinion that challenged the constitutionality of a system in which a defendant's bank account determines whether they are jailed before trial. The state's highest court took the next step with a landmark change in rules that requires judges to first look at other ways to ensure a defendant appears for trial.
