FROM Robert Green
LA County Readies for Prison Inmates LA County Supervisors today took up a plan to put the beleaguered Probation Department in charge of state prisoners, parolees and those newly accused of non-serious nonviolent, non-sex-related offenses. They'll become the County's problem under a new state law to reduce overcrowding in state prisons. The law goes into effect in October. Robert Green, editorial writer for the Los Angeles Times , was at the hearing today. Susan Burton is founder and director of A New Way of Life Reentry Project, a nonprofit in South LA that works with formerly incarcerated women and girls.
