ANNOTATION: “Criminal justice students outline the implementation and impact of moving the state’s offenders from state prisons to county jails and also report on two empirical studies of the parole process for life prisoners.” Findings are provided for the impact of California’s Public Safety Realignment Legislation (AB 109) in real-time, and the parole of inmates considered “lifers”--those individuals serving life sentences (about 25% of California’s prison population)--based on Marsy’s Law. The students participated in the "Advanced Seminar on Criminal Law and Public Policy: A Research Practicum" created by Joan Petersilia for the Stanford Law School.
