If a sentence greater than 180 days for any offense except Contempt of Court or payable fines, the Maryland Division of Parole and Probation will be notified. In turn, the Division notifies the Maryland Parole Commission. The date of Parole Hearing is based primarily upon the length and starting date of your sentence, and is determined solely by the Parole Commission. Prior to your parole hearing, the Division of Parole and Probation will prepare a Pre-Parole Report and a counselor will complete an institutional adjustment report. Both reports are submitted to the Parole Commission.
