If a commitment record is issued for a friend how can I find out what the sentence was?

Frederick, MD |

My friend had a pre trial hearing today but never came back from court. I looked up his case and it said commitment record issued. My understanding is that means he probably took a plea bargain and went to jail. I want to find out how long his sentence is?

  1. The online database at Maryland Case Search should provide the sentence given, if one was issued. It may take a day or two to show up, however. If you need help, you can call Records Office at the COunty Correctional facility where the case was handled and they can provide you with sentencing information as well.
