Warden denied her compassionate release

Johnson, a non-violent inmate with two young sons, had petitioned the prison for compassionate release. The warden had rejected the request. She became the first inmate in Coleman low — as in low-security — to die from the virus, according Bureau of Prison records. There are 182 inmates and 21 staffers in total who have tested positive for COVID-19 in the facility, which has been beset by a series of problems, including a Legionnaire’s Disease outbreak and allegations of sexual abuse. Family members describe the situation as dire, with more woman getting sick daily.
