Nowhere to go: Some inmates freed because of coronavirus are 'scared to leave'
John Mele is one of roughly 700 inmates who were released from county jails in New Jersey to address the growing novel coronavirus pandemic. But when he was handed two bus tickets and freed, he said he was frightened, not relieved.
"I was scared to leave," Mele told CNN. "There ain't too much sh** that I'm scared of. I'm scared of heights and I'm scared of going to something I don't know about."
He said he was given five minutes notice last Thursday after he was told he was leaving the jail three months earlier than his sentence for breaking into a fishing store. He had no place to go and no assurances that he was healthy.
"No temperature check. Nothing. They gave me two bus tickets," Mele said. He was steered toward a homeless shelter, but said he refused, concerned the virus would be spreading inside the cramped housing complex.
"I'm telling you the honest truth, if I had to go to a homeless shelter, I'm going back to jail.

Sex predator William Gordon carried out 'horror' attack on stranger after early prison release
A serial sexual predator who carried out a “horror” attack on a stranger had been set free from prison despite posing a known risk to women and girls, a court heard.
William Gordon, 34, was released just weeks before he stalked a series of women in south London late at night while “scouting” for a victim.
When he struck, Gordon pinned a woman against an alleyway wall as he sexually assaulted her and, after she broke free, chased her down to continue the attack.

A Chicago 8-year-old whose mother was fatally shot in 2011 while months pregnant with him has died.
In August 2011, 17-year-old Charinez Jefferson was walking down a street in the Chicago Lawn neighborhood when 18-year-old Timothy Jones opened fire, WLOX, the Chicago Sun Times and CBS2 report.
According to prosecutors, Jones was attempting to shoot a rival gang member walking with Jefferson, who was six months pregnant. He shot the expecting mother in the head, back and chest as she begged him for her life.
Despite Jefferson not surviving the shooting, her baby did. Kahmani Mims-Jefferson was born prematurely and would eventually be adopted by a hospital nurse.
On March 8, Kahmani died of “complications of prematurity” and “multiple maternal gunshot wounds,” according to the Cook County Medical Examiner.
