There is a large article in today’s Modesto BEE that begins with “State prisoners arrive in jails.” It covers almost a full-page in total, starting on A-1 above the fold and ending on the back page of the A section.
It starts off with an attack with a weapon on a jailer by a realignment inmate. The wound took over a dozen stitches to close.
It also goes into the non-non-non classification. The Stanislaus County D. A., Birgit Fladager, is quoted as saying, “That included people who have stolen 30 cars, people who make a career of breaking into business at night and stealing equipment…They are selling rock cocaine in the park or pounds of heroin and we are sending the message that his is not a serious felony.”
Of the 1,082 current guests of the county only 47 have been convicted and are doing time for misdemeanor offenses.
