California plans to release 76,000 inmates early

With little notice, California on Saturday is increasing early discharge credits for 76,000 prisoners. Counting violent and repeat criminals, because it further trims the population of what once was the nation’s biggest state correctional system.

More than 63,000 prisoners sentenced for violent crimes will be qualified for good behavior credits that shorten their sentences by one-third rather than the one-fifth that had been in place since 2017.

That includes nearly 20,000 inmates who are serving life sentences with the possibility of parole. The same increased release time will apply to nearly 2,900 nonviolent third strikers, the corrections department projected.

Also as of Saturday, all minimum-security prisoners in work camps will be qualified for the same month of earlier discharge for each month they spend in the camp. Counting those in firefighting camps, regardless of the seriousness of their crime.
