New Orleans, La. - Orleans Parish Prison attorneys worked out an agreement with defense attorneys over access to their clients at the prison.
Public defenders had sued the sheriff claiming there was a lack of confidentiality in attorney - inmate meetings at the prison.
In a statement, Sheriff Gusman says the new agreement provides for advance notice to the sheriffs office for visits and sets parameters on when attorneys can visit.
The meetings will take place in the house of detention and the sheriff's office agrees to make more modifications to the facility to accommodate the attorney client meetings.
