Until relatively recently, persons placed on probation were denied even the most basic of due process protections. Beginning in the late 1960's, a series of Supreme Court decisions made it clear that many of the rights afforded the average citizen were equally applicable to the probationer. Since that time the rights afforded the Maryland probation have expanded greatly. This comment presents the current state of those rights and its author concludes that although burdened by many restrictions, the Maryland probationer is nonetheless in an advantageous position when compared with his counterpart in other jurisdictions.
