ACSOL Executive Director Janice Bellucci has been appointed to the case of In re Gadlin, which is currently under review by the California Supreme Court. Prior to Ms. Bellucci’s appointment, Mr. Gadlin was represented by attorney Michael Satris, co-founder of the Prison Law Office, who recently died of a heart attack. The case was fully briefed by Mr. Satris prior to his death.
“I am honored to be appointed to this case before the California Supreme Court because it challenges regulations issued by the California Department of Corrections that prohibit anyone convicted of a sex offense from receiving the benefits of Proposition 57,” stated Bellucci. “I have successfully challenged the same regulations both in trial court and appellate court.”
According to the California Supreme Court, oral arguments in the case will be conducted in October 2020 on a date to be determined.
