The two classes of criminals released were those in prison for probation violations and low-level crimes. 

Attorney General Gurbir Grewal and the County Prosecutors Association of the State of New Jersey also signed onto the agreement.

The order allows county prosecutors to challenge the release of inmates. It also suspends their sentences until the coronavirus crisis has passed rather than commute the sentences, but gives judges the discretion whether to order inmates back to jail later or give them credit for time served.

“Unprecedented times call for rethinking the normal way of doing things,” ACLU-NJ Executive Director Amol Singha said in a statement, noting the ACLU was "proud" of New Jersey.

New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy (D) said it was his responsibility to keep all residents of the state safe.
