State's prison population rising

As the Danbury Federal Correctional Institution gets ready to transition back to a prison for male inmates, a report is out that says the state's prison population is rising because there are fewer paroles.  State officials say that by early fall, the number could be around 17,500.


The state said it might be necessary to open a prison but the Malloy administration later said inmate counts are not likely to require that.


State officials say paroles were down 54 percent between June 2012 and last month.
