Louisiana Corrections Department Plans To Air Condition Death Row
The Louisiana Department of Corrections has presented a plan to keep Angola State Prison’s death row cool.
The department was directed by U.S. District Judge Brian Jackson to rectify the temperature issue. The department needs to keep the heat index below 88 degrees.
The plan, according to the Louisiana Radio Network, lists air conditioning, cold showers and ice chests as the primary methods to keep prisoners cool.
The judge toured Angola’s death row last summer to sample the conditions. Currently, only fans and windows are used to cool the facility.
