Default How Coronavirus Is Impacting The Prison Population In Massachusetts

How Coronavirus Is Impacting The Prison Population In Massachusetts

As coronavirus infection and death rates continue to climb in Massachusetts prisons and jails, the state is releasing some prisoners to protect them. But, as WBUR Reporter Deborah Becker tells us, not everyone agrees that is the right approach.

We also hear from Lisa Newman Polk, an attorney and a licensed clinical social worker who worked at Souza-Baranowski Correctional Center from 2013 to 2014. She talks about the conditions inside some of the state's correctional facilities.

Plus, Middlesex District Attorney Marian Ryan shares her office's approach to releasing prisoners.
