Default 1,400 more Louisiana prisoners will be out Nov. 1

1,400 more Louisiana prisoners will be out Nov. 1 as criminal justice overhaul takes effect

About 1,400 additional Louisiana state prisoners will be released earlier than expected Nov. 1, as a result of law changes taking effect that month that retroactively shortened criminal sentences. The changes are part of a wider overhaul of the criminal justice system Gov. John Bel Edwards and the Louisiana Legislature undertook in the spring.

The Department of Public Safety and Corrections typically releases 1,500 people from lockup every month, so the law changes will essentially put twice as many people on the street in November. The number of releases could remain elevated for several months, as the people behind bars affected by the law changes work their way through the system.
