CORRECTION: A previous version of this story stated the Supreme Court order mandated population reduction in correctional facilities to their design capacities in an effort to prevent a COVID-19 outbreak. State Judiciary spokeswoman Jan Kagehiro said the instruction by the court wasn’t a mandate. She also said an instruction to lower court judges that supervised release should be presumed for inmates would be unless release posed a safety risk to the public or the inmate expired with the deadline for motions for COVID-19 releases on April 28. The Tribune-Herald regrets the errors.
