Page Background


The Anne Arundel County Department of Detention Facilities Weekender Program processes more weekender sentences than any other juristiction in the state of Maryland. Weekend confinement is an alternative sentence defined in statute as non-consecutive periods of 48 hours or less per week. Typically, weekend sentences are from 6:00 p.m. Friday to 6:00 p.m. Sunday. Weekend inmates are subject to all AACDF rules and regulations and are not generally separated from the general population.


  • Alcohol/Drug Testing
    Conducted for cause/suspicion.
  • Diminution of Confinement
    Five days Good Conduct Time for every 30 days served, calculated on a pro-rated basis.
  • Violations
    Violations of institutional rules are handled through the AACDDF disciplinary process.  Typically, the only meaningful sanction is loss of earned diminution credits; though disciplinary segregation may be ordered for serious violations. 
    • Offenders who are late less than four (4) hours, by agreement with the Courts, on the release date must remain the amount of equal to the lateness.
    • Letters concerning serious or repeated rule violations are forwarded to the court for appropriate action.
  • Failure to report
    (or late greater than four (4) hours) - will result in charges filed for second degree escape, after verifying with the Records Unit that the offender was not excused for cause.
  • Referral
    Offenders are sentenced to weekend confinement via Commitment Record, which must specify the required time of arrival and departure, number of weekends, and total time to be served. Informational cards providing reporting location, fee payment processes and other basic requirements are supplied to the court for issuance to offenders upon sentencing.


An administrative fee, due on the first reporting day, is based on sentence length, according to a sliding scale.  Failure to submit the fee will result in an infraction.
