Local custody for current/prior non-violent, non-serious, non-sex offenders Changes to State Parole Eligibility
No Prison for Parole ViolationsEstablishes Local Post-release SupervisionLocal Planning and Funding
The following sentences must be served in state prison:
Note: “excluded crimes” are those for which a defendant can still be committed to state prison.
Enhanced local custody and supervision tools:
No state prison inmates were transferredto county jails.
Virtually All State Felons Complete Their Sentences in Custody
County-level supervision upon release from prison
County Does NOT supervise:
Parole revocations will be served in county jail – not in state prison - for no more than 180 days. (Reduced Prison Population by 14,000)
Contracting back from the state for revocations is not an option.Graduated sanctions including flash incarceration at the local level (revocations lasting longer than 10 days require a BPH hearing).Only persons previously sentenced to a term of life can be revoked to prison
Parole revocation process remains with Board of Parole Hearings (BPH) until July 1, 2013. The revocation process will transition to the Courts after July 1, 2013.
