As we all have heard, California state prisons are far too overcrowded. As a result, many times, convicted criminals get released early. Well, a new plan calls for some prisoners to do their time at a “community-based” rehabilitation program instead of getting released early! This includes home confinement, electronic monitoring, or doing time a county jail.
In a way, this can be seen as a positive as some of the newly convicted felons or those who violate their parole would avoid going to prison and instead do their time in one of these “community-based” rehabilitation programs; a trade most would probably make. On the other hand, this would eliminate releasing criminal defendants sentenced to serve time in state prisons due to overcrowding issues.
It will be interesting to see if this plan is put into place in the upcoming months and Wallin and Klarich will continue to monitor any developments.
