Police Arrest Early Release Prisoner

Sonora, CA — The Sonora Police Department has arrested a man who was one of the first to be released early as part of the state’s recent cost cutting measures.

Tuesday morning at 11:41am, Jimmy Lloyd Lindsey of Sonora was arrested for DUI in the 1100 block of Mono Way.

Lindsey now has five D.U.I. offenses dating back to 2005. Following Lindsey’s arrest he was transported to Tuolumne County Jail and booked for driving under the influence and driving with a suspended license.

The new NRP program is a non-supervised version of parole, where the parolee does not report to a parole agent and cannot have a parole hold placed on them for violating the law.

According to the Police Department, there are 21 NRP parolees living in Tuolumne County.
