“We have to defer to Dr. Pratt’s medical and public health expertise and experience as to the number of people the jail can safely house,” said Danielle Harris, a managing attorney at the Public Defender’s Office. “The Public Defender’s Office is working on many fronts aimed at reducing the jail population.”
