Fewer felons are skipping out on probation under California’s new criminal justice realignment than under the state’s old parole system, according to a report released Wednesday, the Associated Press’ Don Thompson reports.
The report obtained by The Associated Press is the first six-month snapshot of trends in all 58 counties.
It found that less than 4 percent of felons failed to report to their county probation officers after their release from state prison, compared to 14 percent who faced fugitive arrest warrants for failing to report to their parole officers under the old system.
