Maryland Gov Releases JJ Plan

Maryland Governor Martin O’Malley unveiled his five-year, $200 million plan to revamp the state’s JJ system today. The plan calls for building

four detention and treatment centers for juvenile offenders, including two 48-bed units at the Cheltenham Youth Facility in Prince George’s County.

O’Malley said the investment would allow the state to replace some of the facilities that the state’s independent juvenile justice monitor has decried as deplorable and to reduce the number of young offenders sent out of state for treatment.
