Maryland to revamp prisoner release procedures
Maryland corrections officials say they will revise inmate release procedures after a man serving a life sentence was mistakenly released last week, the Baltimore Sun reports.
The Department of Public Safety and Correctional Services will begin using portable fingerprint scanning machines at some prisons. The decision comes after Raymond Taylor, 26, was mistakenly released after he obtained his cellmate's identification card. Taylor was convicted of shooting his ex-girlfriend and her daughters in 2005.
He was found a day after his release hiding in a closet at a home in West Virginia.
