SB 53/HB269 Child Interrogation Protection Act Petition
What’s the 2022 top priority in reforming the MD justice system? This bill that requires police to notify parents when a child is taken into custody.  In the MGA hearings, testifiers revealed children are detained, pressured into false confessions, and psychologically abused without parent notification or a lawyer present.  Show your support by reading about the bill and signing a petition at ACLU MD.
