Milwaukee Sheriff Reverses Course On Early Release

by

MILWAUKEE, Wis. (WTAQ) - The sheriff of Wisconsin’s largest county has done an about-face on letting prisoners end their terms early. Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke says he’ll cut staff and do other things to make up for a $4.7 million deficit in his budget this year. County Executive Scott Walker, a Republican candidate for Wisconsin governor, got heat from Democrats for Clarke’s original proposals. They would have closed 2 dorms at the county’s House of Correction in Franklin, and let 120 prisoners serve their time under home monitoring. Clarke changed his mind after a recent meeting with Walker – but the sheriff said Walker did not order his turnabout. The Democrats accused Walker of being fiscally irresponsible by allowing the prisoner release to happen.
