Federal Judge Alvin Hellerstein ordered the release of Castelle “in light of defendant’s ailing health and concomitant risk to defendant from the COVID-19 pandemic” shortly after, court papers show.

A number of prisons have been overwhelmed by the coronavirus.

The Federal Medical Center in Fort Worth, which holds men with serious or chronic medical needs, has become the site of one of the largest facility spreads of COVID-19 in the country.

The Bureau of Prisons (BOP) reported Wednesday there had been 298 lab confirmed cases among inmates in Fort Worth.

The Marion Correctional Institution in Ohio has nearly 80 percent of inmates, or about 1,976, testing positive for COVID-19.

In Italy, that nation's overcrowded prisons are pandemic petri dishes, so authorities are letting out older detainees—including mobsters—to keep them safe.

From the Daily Beast:

Italy’s anti-mafia directorate is understandably displeased by the compassionate release measure, which was meant to release other types of criminals, such as those serving time for white collar or non-violent crimes. But once those inmates were released, the prisons were still overflowing, so more had to be let go to allow prisoners to live in single-occupancy cells to mitigate the spread of COVID-19. There are now 74 known mob bosses with health conditions that will qualify them for early release. They are all serving under the so-called 41-Bis penal code, which  is meant to prohibit anyone convicted of mafia collusion from being granted early release or parole.

There are many other incarcerated mafia thugs who are deliberately trying to break the rules of social distancing as an attempt to get sprung. “It is a very alarming situation,” Leo Beneduci, secretary general of Italy’s largest prison police officers’ union, told the Guardian this week. “In Italy there are approximately 12,000 members of criminal organizations in prison. Members of the penitentiary police have begun reporting detainees who embrace each other with the alleged goal of increasing the possibility of contracting the virus and getting released from prison.”
