About 400 DC jail inmates to be transferred to a federal penitentiary in Pennsylvania because of unacceptable conditions, US Marshals Service says – The Washington Post


Many of those 400 inmates, if not most, are D.C.-area residents with family members in local communities. In light of the inspection’s findings, the Justice Department said Tuesday, the federal detainees in the CDF will be moved to the U.S. penitentiary in Lewisburg, Pa., a nearly four-hour drive north of the District.
