Investigation looks at mental health care for incarcerated people in North CarolinaPlay
A new investigation looks at the long wait times that inmates with mental illness face when they're too sick to stand trial in North Carolina. Half end up waiting longer than 300 days in custody so they can receive treatment so they can go to trial, according to a year-long investigation by WFAE in Charlotte with support from PBS's FRONTLINE. The series is called "Fractured."
Here & Now's Scott Tong speaks with Dana Miller Ervin, a WFAE reporter on the series.
