Gov. Brown signs bill to transfer nonviolent felons to county jails

Apr 4, 2011 10:45:00 PM - latimes.com
The measure is designed to reduce the number of inmates in California's chronically overcrowded state lockups and keep relatively low-level offenders closer to their homes, where drug treatment and mental health services are believed to be more effective.

Tens of thousands of felons convicted of nonviolent crimes will serve their time in county jails instead of state prisons under a law signed by Gov. Jerry Brown on Monday.
