A Cleveland judge is welcoming the announcement that U.S. Marshals will conduct an independent assessment of conditions at the county jail after six inmates died in the last three months. WKSU's Kabir Bhatia reports.
Cleveland Municipal Court Judge Michael Nelson says he’s encouraged that conditions at the jail are being evaluated. He announced last week he wouldn’t send any more non-violent offenders to the jail, given the recent deaths, instead ordering personal bond or court-supervised release.
