CARLISLE, Pa. (WHTM) — Dozens of inmates have been released from the Cumberland County Prison amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
Cumberland County District Attorney Skip Ebert said of the 92 inmates furloughed from the prison in recent weeks 45 were released under COVID-19 early release guidelines.
Many of the inmates released had some age and health concerns and some had 1-4 months left on their sentences.
None of them were repeat violent offenders.
If they have extended sentences, they have agreed to return to complete them.
