Thirty-six inmates are eligible to be released early from the D.C. Jail after Mayor Muriel Bowser granted 75 days of additional good time credits Friday.

Good time credits allow a prisoner’s sentence to be reduced. 

This grant follows the COVID-19 Response Emergency Amendment Act of 2020, which was passed March 17.

Half of the 36 eligible inmates will be able to be released immediately. All of the eligible inmates had a misdemeanor conviction.

Upon release, the inmates will receive social and health services support.
