Group Calls For End to Solitary Confinement in Prison


Advocates and state lawmakers are calling for the end of solitary confinement in Connecticut's prisons and jails.

The group Stop Solitary: Connecticut held a news conference Tuesday with lawmakers to express support for ending the practice.

A replica solitary cell was also on display in the lobby of the Capitol building.

New Haven Democratic Sen. Gary Winfield said a bill ending the practice could be coming to the Judiciary Committee.
