Louisiana’s Early Prisoner Release: Is It Working [VIDEO]
Caddo Parish Sheriff Steve Prator talks with 101.7 / 710 KEEL's Robert J Wright and Erin McCarty about Louisiana's Justice Reinvestment Act, passed by the legislature in 2017. Prator, who was critical of aspects of the law, including the bill's prisoner early release program, updates KEEL listeners on its implementation and results.
Prator, who still questions the wisdom of the of the early release, adds that even though the law promised to reallocate saved money to parishes across the state, his department has yet to receive any funding to pay for promised programs and reforms.
