  • Lifer Parole

    Most do not know this but it may be of some interest to homicide investigators. Under a deal our great governor made when the state missed the population cap on prison population reduction, a new Board of Prison terms rule / law went quietly into effect. Now, irrespective of how many years a murderer may be sentenced to as part of a life sentence, at age 60 they are now automatically eligible for parole consideration. In other words, lets say your 50 year old defendant gets a first degree murder conviction / sentence of 25 years to life, at age 60 he or she will be eligible to be paroled. This does not guarantee a parole date will be set, but with now about 30% of lifers now getting a parole date each year (as opposed to about 3% before AB109), there will be a lot more convicted killers on the streets. Although a bit older, I bet they can still pull a trigger.

    Yay for AB109!
    Other officer: Oh that's right, I forgot, you're God's gift to police work.
    Me: At least someone recognizes it.

    Turns out basic police work isn't so hard, you just have to leave the station.

          I have already heard a lot of "it's a misdemeanor not committed in my presence, no report for you..."
