JoCo OK's prisoner work-release program

The rules: Up at 4 a.m., breakfast at 4:30, out the door by 5 for most folks. No maid service and no indoor smoking.

Johnson County has a new crime-fighting tool to relieve overcrowded jails, save tax money and help convicted offenders get their lives on a more productive course.

When it is launched in October, a Department of Corrections work-release program will allow many four-time DUI offenders to hold jobs while they serve their typical 90-day sentences.
