California – Frequently Asked Questions About Criminal Justice Realignment from The Judicial Council of California / Administrative Office of…

August 30, 2011 The 2011 Criminal Justice Realignment Act becomes operative on October 1, 2011. As you know, the act makes significant changes to felony sentencing laws, and assigns courts a new and significant role in the revocation process for offenders who violate their terms or conditions of postrelease supervision or parole. In the AOC’s July 1, 2011, email correspondence to all presiding judges and court executives, questions were solicited about the act and its implementation. In response, AOC staff has received numerous questions about several aspects of these coming changes. This memorandum provides the Ad Hoc Criminal Justice Realignment Steering Committee’s responses to the most frequently asked questions (FAQ). The memorandum will also be posted on the AOC’s newly-launched online Criminal Justice Realignment Resource Center at http://www.courts.ca.gov/partners/realignment.htm , and will be revised and re-posted as additional information is available. In addition, specialized training materials are available on Serranus. Full document at this link: FAQ-criminal-justice-realignment-Phase-1–08-30-11
