Jay Atkinson, Chief of the Offender Information Services Branch in the Office of Research at CDCR Headquarters, allowed himself to be “arrested” Wednesday in a move to help raise funds for the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA).

Anyone wanting to raise “bail” for him (a donation to MDA) can do so by going to his page at https://www2.mda.org/site/TR?px=1817416&pg=personal&fr_id=6345 and clicking the “Donate to Me” button. (This link may not open on a CDCR computer.)
