HARRISBURG, PA — Gov. Tom Wolf issued reprieves this week for the first group of Department of Corrections inmates who met criteria for the Temporary Program to Reprieve Sentences of Incarceration, which the governor established through order on April 10. A copy of the governor’s order can be found as a PDF here or on Scribd.
After providing information to county prosecutors and judges earlier this week, submissions were received by the DOC for additional consideration by DOC Secretary John Wetzel. Sec. Wetzel then submitted a list of inmates to Gov. Wolf for his consideration.
Inmates approved in this first round of reprieves are:
|Inmate Name||DOC #||Committing
|Jose Arismendi Rodrigues Jr.||NT5221||Lehigh||04/14/2020||Smithfield|
|Nathaniel Barnes||NX6552||Chester||04/14/2020||Coal Township|
Each reprieve signed by Gov. Wolf reads, “If at any time the subject of this reprieve violates the supervision requirements imposed by the Department, this reprieve is revoked and the individual shall be returned immediately to the physical custody of the Department of Corrections.”
