Antonovich attacks Brown’s prison plan

The Governor needs to stop playing politics with prison advocates and labor unions and take responsible actions to comply with the court order in a cost-effective way without jeopardizing public safety,” said Supervisor Michael D. Antonovich. “The option to contract for more prison beds provides safe and immediate relief to prison overcrowding and achieves compliance with the court order without causing harm to our communities. Early release and shifting additional prisoners to the counties are dangerous options and will increase crime. The contracting option is cost-effective with $65 versus approximately $150 per day per bed.”
