New Bill Requires Prosecutors to be Notified of Parolee Release

A law signed by the Governor on October 4, 2011, now requires that written notice of a parolee’s release date be sent to the Prosecuting Attorneys for both the county in which the crime occurred and the county to where the parolee will be released.

While the stated reason for the change in the law is that it will help protect communities by notifying the prosecutors we at question the motivation and would bet that you will quickly see politics being injected into the process and the DA starting to harass parolees making it even harder for them to get back on the road to redemption.

Politics and justice seldom work together.
