In Ohio John Kasich is moving to relocate nonviolent offenders with short term sentences from prisons to less restrictive environments like halfway houses.
Part of the reason is budgetary, but also recognition that enclosing nonviolent novice offenders with hard core felons even for a year or less, does bad things to the short termer in terms of socializing him into the criminal subculture, including prison islam.
Maybe this court order will force California to make a virtue of necessity.

i agree that many nonviolent first time offenders might be able to get an alternate type of sentence, but maybe if they sent some of the illegals back to their home countries there'd be more room
course with our porous border they might be back sooner than later if their home country doesn't want to spend their money incarcerating them
