Under the plan, inmates who have committed nonviolent, nonserious and nonsexual offenses will be released back to the county probation system rather than to state parole officers. Those newly convicted of such crimes will be sent directly to the counties, which will decide if they should go to a local jail or to an alternative community program. And newly accused defendants may wear electronic monitoring bracelets while they await trial.

Chickens coming home to roost.

Also, no mention of illegals in the article. Does anyone want to guess how much the illegals contribute to the "overcrowding?"

They need the cell blocks for dormitories for the illegals attending college at resident rates.

Brown is going to solve that problem by letting the illegals out and paying their way through college using taxpayer dollars.

I actually completely agree with the Supreme court decision,I don’t get why they can’t be send to some other State’s prison.Surely they will them take in if California offers some kind of incentive.

States: “Help Us, Criminal Illegals Swamp Budgets, Prisons”

The General Accounting Office estimates that as of 2009 there were currently about 350,000 criminal aliens in U.S. prisons, “the majority from Mexico.” At $30,000 per year, per inmate, that’s $11 billion annually, with most of the costs born by the states.

While not all of the criminal aliens are here illegally, criminal illegals are putting a strain on budgets, especially in the states with large illegal immigration populations such as Arizona, Colorado, California, Florida, New York, and Texas.

Not coincidentally, many of those same states are facing the largest budget shortfalls for fiscal year 2011 and 2012, including New York and California. Some estimate state budget shortfalls of over $100 billion in 2012 across state governments in the U.S.

In California, it’s estimated that prisoners who are illegal immigrants cost the state at least $1 billion per year just to keep them in prison. States: “Help Us, Criminal Illegals Swamp Budgets, Prisons”
