Prison Issues Make News Across the State

Even when JeffCo’s crisis seeks to usurp every inch of available newspaper print space, many of the state’s papers are publishing articles that focus on Alabama’s prisons.  From employment openings to prison overcrowding and reentry programming, the papers have been tackling the fiscal and social implications of the state’s prison system.
