Prisoners Released Unsupervised

Sponsored by:

Sacramento, CA — A report shows that California may have improperly released more than 450 dangerous criminals without supervision last year.

It was a part of a program designed to reduce prison crowding and costs. A report by the state prison system’s Inspector General says that a faulty computerized risk assessment program could have resulted in the release of the prisoners under the state’s non-revocable parole law.

The Associated Press reports that the Inspector General found that about 1,500 offenders were improperly left unsupervised, including 450 who “carry a high risk for violence.” The offenders otherwise would have been released under traditional parole, which requires them to report in regularly and follow specific rules.
