Default Article: No-risk inmates' release debated

Dying, disabled, aged are eligible

Nine days before Christmas, state prison officials released Jeffery Cooke from McCain Correctional Hospital and sent him home to Currituck County to die.
Cooke, a 41-year-old repeat drunken driver suffering from liver disease, was the first inmate released under a new state program that grants early parole to terminally ill, disabled and geriatric prisoners who qualify.
North Carolina is among a majority of states that release inmates with high medical costs, but who officials believe pose no threat outside prison.
