The San Jose Mercury News said it best, "It should have been a no-brainer. Dozens of beds in rehabilitation centers sat empty because the state overestimated the number of parolees who would need them. Meanwhile, inmates freed early after voters eased the state's tough Three Strikes Law needed those beds for housing and treatment programs. Since the state had already paid for the beds, it made sense to allow those freed inmates to use them, even though they aren't on parole."
In Los Angeles County, coordination of these services is through Amity Foundation in a process managed with Stanford Law Center's Three Strikes Project and LARRP. For more information, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
