Golden slams inmate release order

Monmouth County Sheriff Shaun Golden said that the NJ Supreme Court’s Order releasing low level offenders from county jails in response to the COVID-19 crisis is “Unacceptable.”

“It is absurd that this court order to release inmates includes cases such as – failure to register as a sex offender, child endangerment, resisting arrest/assault on our Law Enforcement officers with no regard for the victims. Is this really about preventing an outbreak in our jail? No cases in Monmouth Correctional facility to date. “

As of Tuesday, 40 of the 62 inmates deemed eligible for release from the Monmouth County Correctional Institution had been set free. Officials objected to releasing the other 22 who will have a hearing before a judge.

    grammar in his post was, um, interesting to say the least. I guess he is just going to support Jack for Gov in 21.
