I wanted to get information on how to appeal a parole denial

Lawyer's Assistant: Since parole regulations vary, can you tell me what state this is in?

I am in Maryland

Lawyer's Assistant: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?

Not yet

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

The information is not for me it's for my fiance I am trying to get as much information as possible for him so he could try to appeal the denial. He has been incarcerated for almost 3 years now

Unfortunately under Marlyand law, there is no appeal process for the denial of parole.

If parole is denied, that unfortunately means that your husband will have to serve the remainder of his sentence.

The good news is that he can however earn good behavior credits that will be deducted from his sentence and which can result in an early release from his prison term.

You can read more about parole request laws here:

I hope that helps!

Please let me know if you have any other questions. Also, please take a moment to rate me using the stars at the top of the page, as it's the only way experts are compensated for our time on the site. I do not receive a salary here at JustAnswer, and am only compensated for my time after receiving a rating of 3 stars or more (5 stars are always appreciated). The question won't close after rating, so you can still ask follow-up questions after. Thanks, ***** ***** it!

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
