I have located this Los Angeles County Press Release from November of 2006 which states in part:
Los Angeles County Sheriff Lee Baca was joined today by District Attorney Steve Cooley to announce a new early release policy that requires all jail inmates to serve at least 25 percent of their sentence before being eligible for release.
I cannot find a later announcement which changes or supersedes this one.
Is there an official press release from LASO which changes this 25% policy? If so, can you point me to an official copy?
