KY Inmates to be Released to Prevent Virus Spread
By Kentucky News Network
FRANKFORT - Hundreds more Kentucky inmates are expected to be released in an effort to prevent the spread of COVID-19 in prisons.

Cases among staff and inmates have increased over the last few weeks at both the Kentucky State Reformatory in LaGrange and the Kentucky Correctional Institute for Women in Pewee Valley.

There are 379 active inmate cases and 53 active staff cases across the state's correctional facilities. For that reason, the governor’s administration says as many as 700 inmates could have their sentences commuted.

The inmates must be at least 65 years old and near the end of their sentences.
