Default Many Los Angeles County parolees fail to check in, report says


Many Los Angeles County parolees fail to check in, report says

Tuesday July 05, 2005
LOS ANGELES (AP) More than 7,000 convicts released in Los Angeles County have failed to report to their parole agents and are being sought for arrest, according to a newspaper report published Tuesday.

That's 20 percent of about 35,500 parolees released in the county as of last month and the 7,000 represent more than one-third of nearly 19,400 parole violators statewide, the Daily News of Los Angeles said, citing California Department of Corrections documents.

Analysts say the parole system needs more money and an overhaul.

``We have too many inmates and not enough (rehabilitation) programs,'' said Daniel Macallair, executive director of the Center on Juvenile and Criminal Justice in Oakland. ``We are not able to provide any kind of meaningful re-entry services to help them make the transition from prisons to the streets.''

Macallair added: ``You don't have to be a social scientist to figure out what the consequences of this are going to be.''

One parolee, for example, had not reported to his parole agent and went on to allegedly shoot and kill sheriff's Deputy Jerry Ortiz on June 24 in Hawaiian Gardens, about 25 miles southeast of downtown Los Angeles. Jose Orozco has been accused with killing the deputy.

There are nearly 114,000 parolees in the state who are overseen by about 3,100 parole employees, according to the Daily News. That means each parole worker has a caseload of about 37 parolees.

Has anyone been in court in L. A. ? I was 3 months ago and of the 20 people I sat and listened to all, and I mean all were here illegal. They were to do time, be deported. After they get out they only had 72 hours to report. Well how can they do this if they are now in ins or are already deported. Has anyone checked to see how many of the ones who don't report are not even here anymore. Or in ins?
