According to Arizona Department of Corrections whistleblowers, hundreds of incarcerated people who should be eligible for release are being held in prison because the inmate management software cannot interpret current sentencing laws.

KJZZ is not naming the whistleblowers because they fear retaliation. The employees said they have been raising the issue internally for more than a year, but prison administrators have not acted to fix the software bug. The sources said Chief Information Officer Holly Greene and Deputy Director Joe Profiri have been aware of the problem since 2019.

The Arizona Department of Corrections confirmed there is a problem with the software.

Lemme guess no state accountability...

First lawyer to sue should ask for involved officials to serve the equivalent amount of all overtime served by inmates.
This is where a reputable Justice Department comes down on them like a ton of bricks.

Prisons and law enforcement at large have been on a 4 year spree of doing whatever the hell they want with absolutely no repercussions.

Trust me: once Merrick Garland is confirmed, give him 6 months to get the Justice Department back on its feet. After that, it's going to be a absolute deluge of lawsuits and criminal prosecutions of people like this.
