State's early release program up for discussion

Posted: Updated:
HARTFORD, CT (WFSB) -

Families of victims are scheduled to speak about the state's controversial early release program in Hartford on Friday.

The law allows inmates to get time taken off of their sentence for good behavior.

Critics of the program argue that it rewards dangerous felons.

On Friday, lawmakers will discuss a bill that would repeal that program.
