Report: Louisiana often holds inmates beyond release dates

FILE - The Louisiana State Penitentiary at Angola is seen in West Feliciana Parish, La., May 9, 2011. Louisiana's prison system routinely holds people beyond their legal release dates, the U.S. Department of Justice said Wednesday, Jan. 25, 2023, in a report concluding that the state has failed for years to develop solutions to “systemic overdetentions” that violate inmates' rights and are financially costly to taxpayers.
