Attorney General Seeks To Block Inmate Early Release Program

Kentucky's controversial early release of inmates is now under fire from Kentucky Attorney General Jack Conway.

Conway's office filed suit Wednesday to stop the release of inmates before their time is done.

Conway says when juries imposed the sentences, they had no idea they would be reduced for budgetary reasons.

Under the program to control costs, Kentucky has released more than 1,000 prisoners and discharged 1,200 convicts from parole.
