The U.S. Marshals Service has removed about half of inmates under their care from the D.C. jail. This comes after an inspection by the service that found clogged toilets, flooding and other substandard conditions for inmates.

In a statement provided to WTOP, the Marshals Service said about 200 of the 400 inmates housed at the Central Detention Facility have been transferred to a federal prison in Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, and other facilities.

The 200 that remain at the CDF have not been transferred for a variety of reasons, including “pending court-related matters, emergency stay orders granted by the court and medical issues which prohibit transfer at this time, among others,” a spokesperson said.

The federal agency declared the move early last month after an inspection revealed substandard living conditions.
