jails

Yahoo News is reporting that the Mexican  government is instituting a number of reforms in prisons which includes the system that incarcerates individuals in the first place. By fall of 2015, changes will occur in the way trials are conducted, adding more due process for defendants. Another law taking effect is one that protects the rights of inmates, and upgrades the living standards within prisons.

The practice of placing every person in prison who has committed a crime is reportedly ending in Mexico because of prison overcrowding.
