California is not called the fruit and nut state for nothing. Their legislature voted in a bill that Governor Moonbeam just signed that will help empty out the crowded prisons by releasing nonviolent criminals.
Evidently, sexual assaults are considered nonviolent there. When Moonbeam signed the bill into law, he promised that sexual offenders would be exempt. They’re not any longer.
From The Conservative Tribune:
But that may be about to change, and over 10,000 sex offenders could soon be released to the streets in the near future thanks to the ruling of a superior court judge in Sacramento.
That means individuals convicted of offenses such as incest, pimping minors into prostitution and possession of child pornography may soon be free to walk among the public again.
The Los Angeles Times reported that Sacramento Superior Court Judge Allen Sumner issued a preliminary order on Friday to California state prison officials which ordered them to rewrite their regulations stemming from Prop. 57.
The state argued that language within Prop. 57 gave officials broad discretion to include or exclude any class of offenders from consideration for early parole, but Judge Sumner disagreed and thought the state had gone too far in specifically excluding non-violent sex offenders.
Judge Sumner said:
“If the voters had intended to exclude all registered sex offenders from early parole consideration under Proposition 57, they presumably would have said so.”
The judge says that the state has to define what is violent and what is not as it pertains to sex crimes. Their back is against the wall here. Once they have a clear definition of what is a violent sex crime, they will have to give Americans the same soft treatment illegal aliens get to keep them from being deported.
What a nightmare. Just another reason to not visit the state again, I suppose.
