Justice Department Threatens to Yank Federal Funding to States Over Prison Compliance

States have two choices: Comply with federal prison standards to reduce inmate rape or lose federal grant money.

The Montgomery Advertiser reports that the Justice Department sent all 50 states a letter last week warning that would lose 5% of their federal funding if they are in compliance with the Prison Rape Elimination Act.

The deadline to respond is May 15.

The letter comes just a month after the Justice Department released a report that showed serious problems, including inmate rape, at the Julia Tutwiler Prison for Women in Wetumpka, Ala.
