Prison realignment changing law enforcement

from Victorville Daily Press

It's been three years since California legislators passed Assembly Bill 109, a prison realignment measure that aimed to reduce state prison overcrowding by mandating that some convicted felons serve time in county jails or be released to the supervision of probation departments. The bill also extended PC 4019 to county jails, meaning that inmates convicted of nonviolent crimes would serve only half of their sentence if they maintained good behavior.
