WISDOM Asking Wisconsin’s DOC to Release Inmates Eligible for Parole
A faith-based prisoner support group, called WISDOM, is asking Wisconsin’s Department of Corrections to release dozens of inmates who are eligible for parole.
More than 2,600 inmates are eligible for parole and all have been sentenced before the Truth in Sentencing law took effect 16 years ago requiring all inmates to serve their full sentence.
