OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – Recent data from a task force shows Oklahoma’s prison population will increase by 25 percent during the next 10 years if no state legislative action is taken.

According to the Oklahoma Justice Reform Task Force, Oklahoma’s current prison population greatly exceeds capacity and three more prisons will need to be built or contracted to handle the projected growth.
