According to the piece linked here from the correctionsone.com website CDCr has suffered a rash of parolees ditching their ankle monitors. Within the last week there have been five such cases. I grant you that, on a percentage basis that isn’t a huge number but I thought the idea was the people who were in this program were supposed to be basically compliant with their conditions of parole. Oh well, maybe it is just a bubble that will work itself out over time. It would be nice if I thought the department had a workable program in place to take strong action against those former guests of the state who cheat on the program, but I can’t honestly say that I do.
Thanks to Caroline for the link.
