    CORRECTION: Report Suggests AB 109 Lowers Recidivism, L.A. Expected To OK Funds

    Los Angeles County supervisors Tuesday are expected to approve a reimbursement of about $337.7 million to pay for AB 109 programs, a controversial jail-prison realignment program. While Supervisor Michael Antonovich has been a vocal opponent of the state’s public safety realignment program, which was aimed at reducing the number of non-serious, non-violent and non-sexual offenders in state prisons due to a Supreme Court order, officials claim early data shows promise. "Realignment continues to pose serious concerns and threatens public safety statewide because we are dealing with repeat offenders,” Antonovich said last week, when the law’s implementation was reviewed. “There are over 32,000 arrests involving the 24,000 (post-supervision probationers) under probation supervision because some are being arrested up to seven or eight times."

    The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors heard a report by county staff at their Tuesday meeting regarding the results of AB 109 and prison realignment over the last two years, specifically how the county handles offenders released under the bill.
