Cleveland judge: 'I will not send people to jail' after sixth inmate dies in four months
from Cleveland Plain Dealer
A Cleveland judge said he will stop sending people charged with crimes to sit in the Cuyahoga County Jail — unless they're accused of committing the worst crimes — because he believes the jail is no longer safe after a sixth inmate died in four months. Cleveland Municipal Judge Michael Nelson said the string of jail deaths disturbed him and he's no longer comfortable setting bonds for people charged with crimes unless they're charged with violent crimes.
