California prisons may be forced to let out thousands of sex offenders on early parole, despite Gov. Jerry Brown’s promises that no such thing would happen. California voters in 2016 approved a ballot measure known as Proposition 57 which allows for the early parole release of supposedly non-violent offenders.
The measure passed, in part, based on a statement from Democrat Gov. Jerry Brown which promised that individuals convicted of non-violent sexual offenses would be excluded from consideration for early release, according to The Daily Caller.
But that may be about to change, and over 10,000 sex offenders could soon be released to the streets in the near future thanks to the ruling of a superior court judge in Sacramento.Sacramento County Superior Court Judge Allen Sumner’s ruling relates to the state’s recent referendum on Proposition 57 that orders California prisons to consider early parole for non-violent offenders, the Los Angeles Times reported. Brown, a Democrat, had promised voters that non-violent sex offenders would not see the benefits of the bill, but Sumner’s ruling strikes down the exclusion in part.
“If the voters had intended to exclude all registered sex offenders from early parole consideration under Proposition 57, they presumably would have said so,” Sumner told reporters.
That means individuals convicted of offenses such as incest, pimping minors into prostitution and possession of child pornography may soon be free to walk among the public again.The Los Angeles Times reported that Sacramento Superior Court Judge Allen Sumner issued a preliminary order on Friday to California state prison officials which ordered them to rewrite their regulations stemming from Prop. 57.
Meanwhile, America News Central reported that while the courts and prisons argue over the definitions of violent and non-violent offenses and early parole for sex offenders, the state is veritably falling apart under Democrat leadership.
Governor Jerry Brown has let a ton of criminals out of jail because there isn’t any room for them in the jails. Wouldn’t the solution be to build more jails? Nope. Not for liberals. They just let criminals out onto the streets.Now, California is reportedly about to release even more criminals.
Indeed, thanks to Democrat policies, the public school system is terrible, the number of homeless individuals is skyrocketing, as are taxes while businesses and residents who’ve had enough are fleeing the state as fast as they can. Now throw 10,000 convicted sex offenders released early into the mix, and it is wonder anyone with any sense is left in the state at all anymore.
