In October 2017, the Task Force to Study Erroneous Conviction and Imprisonment formed (Chapters 799 & 800, Acts of 2017).
The Task Force was 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 was to 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 ended September 30, 2018.
The Task Force submitted its final report on December 1, 2018.
