Federal prisons are about to release 6,000 inmates ahead of schedule and  about 140 of them will return to Maryland. We’ll learn what it means for those ex-felons, and for the criminal-justice system. Our guests: James Wyda, Maryland's Federal Public Defender; Steve Cook, President of the National Association of Assistant United States Attorneys; and Jim Sents, Vice-President of the Vice President of Corrections, Veterans and Housing Services For Volunteers for America.

Sheilah Kast is the host of On The Record, Monday-Friday, 9:30-10:00 am.
