In October 2017, the Task Force to Study Erroneous Conviction and Imprisonment formed (Chapters 799 & 800, Acts of 2017).
The Task Force is to study Maryland's current process for establishing whether a person was convicted wrongly and how to determine innocence, as well as the processes used by other states for designating an erroneous conviction, determining the innocence of a person who was convicted in error, and compensating for the imprisonment that resulted from wrongful conviction. Further, the Task Force will recommend whether Maryland should implement a new process for designating erroneous convictions and determining the innocence of persons so convicted.
Authorization for the Task Force ends September 30, 2018.
