Shasta County DA Joins 44 Others In Suit Against Early Release

Shasta County District Attorney Stephanie Bridgett is joining several other DA’s from around the state in taking the prison system to court. A public records act request has been submitted to the corrections department seeking information on how much prison time is being dropped as a result of a rules change that greatly increases good conduct credits granted to inmates. Bridgett says multiple instances have been found in which serious offenders have been released far before their terms were over despite specific written objections from her office. Less than 2 months ago DA’s from 44 counties filed suit against the prison system for drastically changing the credits system and bypassing the regulatory process by declaring the change a “emergency measure”. A ruling on a preliminary injunction to stop the early releases is expected Wednesday in Sacramento Superior Court.
