The Biden Administration is beginning the clemency process for certain inmates released to home confinement due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The process will begin with a review of nonviolent drug offenders on Cares Act Home Confinement with four years or less to serve.
A provision of federal stimulus law signed by former President Donald Trump last year expanded the group of inmates eligible for early release.
According to the Bureau of Prisons website, over 7,500 inmates are on home confinement.
It's not clear how many of the inmates are non-violent drug offenders.
