CA: California will fight a judge’s ruling ordering the state to consider earlier parole for sex offenders


(SACRAMENTO) — California said Monday that it will fight a judge’s ruling ordering the state to consider earlier parole for potentially thousands of sex offenders, such as those convicted of raping an unconscious person.

Gov. Jerry Brown’s administration will appeal the order by Sacramento County Superior Court Judge Allen Sumner, said Vicky Waters, spokeswoman for the Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation. The judge previously said in a tentative ruling that prison officials must rewrite part of the parole regulations in a ballot measure passed by voters in 2016.

No inmates will be released while the appeal is underway, Waters said. She said in a statement that the ruling “does not reflect the intent of California’s voters who approved Proposition 57 by a 2-to-1 margin.”

“Sacramento attorney Janice Bellucci, who sued over the parole rules as president of California Reform Sex Offender Laws”

Yikes! Time needs to update their “Rolodex” 🙂

Yet these same people who do a thing to combat the millions of illegals in the state (who have also broken the law, mind you). Every politician in California needs to be thrown out of office, starting with the Governor.

Janice is gonna put the hurt on em if they move one toe out of line.

Everyone is screaming about Prop 57 letting out “violent” offenders…and the CDCR wants to fight a ruling that will force them to define “nonviolent” because they have no common sense? So let’s say someone, male or female engages willingly in oral sex while in prison with the same sex, or willingly commits sodomy… has to get on the registry…Is that violent? Has anyone watched Orange is the New Black? Is anyone screaming violence because the women appear to be engage in oral sex with one another? No. So what is this, homophobic? They hand out condoms in prison, but if… Read more »

Well if they are handing out condoms in prisons then it should be no surprise to me that at our public high school during my 13 year old teenage son’s health and sex education class he was informed all about how to use condoms (in great detail) and how anyone 12yrs and older can get contraception without parental consent. If they are giving such instructions like this in class then my teenagers know more than I do at my age about sex. And everything else that goes along with sex in today’s society. I find myself dumbfounded with the hypocrisy… Read more »

Laura, keep in mind that in countries where sex education starts much, much earlier in the U.S. and where no topics are left undiscussed, at any age, pregnancy rates for adolescents are far lower than in the U.S. They also have fewer sexually-transmitted diseases. So we have to ask ourselves if our old beliefs and prejudices are worth hanging on to when they clearly do not work for the benefit of these kids.

Hear hear!

After being sentenced to three years in prison for raping his wife my son was paroled and told by his PO that he would have to wear an ankle monitor for an additional three years .He had been on parole for two years thinking he would be off in one more year when he was called back in to his POs office and told he had eight more years on parole .He served his prison time as he should no problems!

You should discuss with a lawyer. Parole and probation are both considered punishment. As I understand it, your son’s punishment, which is part of his sentence, cannot be increased without due process.

I would like to know if non violent sex offenders serving time as of current, will be released if they have served their base term already? According to an appeal being filed againset the judges ruling, the cdcr will not release anyone during the appeal process, can they do that?

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
