More than 3,000 Iowa prisoners will be released early

DES MOINES (KWWL) -

More than 3,000 state prisoners in Iowa will be released early...

State officials are re-calculating their sentences after an Iowa Supreme Court decision last month.

The ruling says inmates who had probation revoked, should be given credit for time served while under supervision of the Department of Corrections.

Officials say that means - hundreds, maybe thousands - of inmates will be paroled or released early, because of the decision.
