O’Malley, Busch, Miller meet on jail hearings

ANNAPOLIS — Gov. Martin O’Malley has met with the presiding officers of the Legislature to discuss hearings about last week’s sweeping federal indictment of 25 people at the Baltimore City Detention Center.

O’Malley met with House Speaker Michael Busch and Senate President Thomas V. Mike Miller on Thursday.

Miller, D-Calvert, says the hearings will involve lawmakers from the House of Delegates and the Senate. Miller says he believes a solution will involve looking at the entire personnel system.

The Senate president also says hearings will be before one of the standing committees of the General Assembly. He mentioned the Legislative Policy Committee as a likely host.

Thirteen female corrections officers were among those charged with plotting to smuggle drugs, cellphones and other contraband.
