For more than two decades, Marylanders given parole-eligible life sentences have been systematically denied a meaningful opportunity for parole, regardless of whether they have earned it. Calvin McNeill is one person among many who have proven that they deserve freedom but were denied a second chance by Maryland's broken parole system.
Nearly 2,100 Marylanders are serving parole-eligible life sentences. Our state is one of only three in the country where the governor must personally approve parole for people serving parole-eligible life sentences, even after rigorous vetting by the entire Parole Commission. This wrongly politicizes the parole system.
Take action to support HB 3 / SB 202 to take the politics out of parole in Maryland.
Please take action now.
