Default No solitary confinement in Maryland

An editorial just came out by Maryland's Commissioner for Corrections that states that Maryland does not use solitary confinement in their prisons (isolation is only for 48 hours maximum and never for the mentally ill).

Since this is a great thing to publicize if it is true (i.e., share with other states as a good model), I wanted to check to see if this is consistent with what you hear from incarcerated loved ones. If it is not (e.g., inmates are transferred to federal facilities as a loophole) it is important to note as well.

Thanks for any feedback...Susan

PS--I volunteer with a group that looks to reduce solitary confinement as cruel and unusual.
