article imageOp-Ed: California prisoner release program again fails

By Gar Swaffar     Mar 30, 2012 in Crime
California's recently enacted law, AB-109 is also known by the local communities as PCRP, the Prisoner Catch & Release Program, and it has failed again.
AB 109 is the prisoner release program which allowed Kevin Duey, as reported at Digital Journal to be released into the community of Arnold, California. Duey subsequently went on what was likely a meth fueled shooting rampage and was shot by a Calaveras County Deputy Sheriff. Duey assumed room temperature at the morgue.
Now, another released prisoner, 33 year old Jakob Main of Rail Road Flat, Ca. who had been serving time in State prison, is again in custody for possession of a controlled substance, (methamphetamine) possession with intent to sell a controlled substance and possession of paraphernalia for unlawful use.
The Post-Release Community Supervision (PRCS) program, also known by state residents as the prisoner catch & release program is one which has been primarily designed to shift the burden of low level, but dangerous criminals back to their county of origin. Along with Jakob Main, an accomplice in the entrepreneurial unlicensed pharmaceutical sales operation, was arrested 24 year old Sandra Kikuchi on the same charges.
The Calaveras County Sheriff's office arrested Main and Kikuchi on Tuesday and the pair are now sitting in the county jail awaiting the outcome of the courts decision. Main might be returned to prison, but it seems unlikely since the State prison system is still mandated by the Supreme Court of the United States to reduce the prison population even more than it already has. Kikuchi in the meantime is unlikely to spend very little time behind bars due to the overcrowded conditions already existing at the county jail.
