Heat risk in jail causes inmate move
BALTIMORE -- Medical screenings ordered by a federal judge resulted Friday in 112 women being declared at risk for health problems at a sweltering Baltimore jail.
Some women were immediately moved into the facility's air-conditioned units. To comply with a court order, others were to be relocated later as the jail scrambled to install extra air conditioners.
U.S. District Judge Andre Davis on Friday ordered screenings for hundreds of inmates at the Women's Detention Center as attorneys argued that excessive heat made the old, poorly ventilated facility dangerous.
Temperatures in the jail, built in 1859, have reached 110 degrees this summer.
