Non-violent offenders in Maryland who remain on good behavior may get time off their parole or probation sentences under newly passed legislation. The bill named the "Earned Compliance Credit and Re-investment Act of 2012" passed both the House and Senate in April. In the state of Maryland, 70,000 people are currently on parole or probation. Lawmakers say the legislation could save about $10 million a year.
