Commonwealth's Attorney Hopes To Stop Early Releases

A Commonwealth's Attorney may ask a Pulaski Circuit Judge to stop any more inmates from getting out of prison early.

Last week, Eddy Montgomery asked the judge to issue a restraining order on early releases.

Montgomery says the state's effort to save money puts everyone in danger.

The judge agreed and put the restraining order in place for Pulaski, Laurel and Rockcastle Counties.

A statewide order could be considered during a hearing Wednesday morning.
