Fulton County Jail is starting to release non-violent, pre-trial detainees.

The ACLU is calling for a commutation of sentences that will end in the next 12 months or inmates that are vulnerable (by age and pre-existing health conditions). This makes sense given that the DOC will need to have a manageable population to maintain the necessary distancing as well as account for staff reductions that may happen due to the virus.
