Sunny Side Up: Indiana prison to charge convicted inmates rent

CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) - “Sunny Side Up” is a daily morning talk show that airs on CBS-19 News featuring Wake Up Cleveland’s Neeha Curtis and Julian Glover.

On Wednesday’s edition of “Sunny Side Up," Neeha and Julian will be discussing an Indiana jail that plans to start charging inmates convicted of a felony up to $30 a day for their time behind bars.

Critics say this will only make it tougher for poor inmates to re-enter society:

“A study by the Brennan Center for Justice, a law and policy institute, said at least a few localities in almost every state allow “pay-to-stay” fees on prisoners. It found these fees are difficult for poor inmates and can make successful reentry into society near impossible for some."

That brings us to the QOTD: What do you think of the idea?
