Washington -- Some, but not all, of the female prisoners at Danbury Correctional Institution who were slated to be moved as far away as Alabama will be able to stay at the Connecticut prison, lawmakers said Monday.
The federal Bureau of Prisons had planned to move about 1,000 female prisoners from that low-security facility to make room for male prisoners.
But the bureau has reversed its course a bit. It now plans to build a new facility on the prison campus to allow about 200 female prisoners to stay.
