State inmate transfer focus of Quincy townhall meeting
Members of the Plumas County Community Corrections Partnership Executive Committee will host a townhall meeting Wednesday, Sept. 28, at the Plumas-Sierra County Fairgrounds in Quincy.
The 7 p.m. meeting in Serpilio Hall will address Assembly Bill 109: California’s Prison Realignment Bill.
Beginning Oct. 1, many nonviolent state felons and parolees will begin serving their sentences in county jails.
The implications of the transfer are far-reaching and could have a dramatic effect on the criminal justice system and residents of Plumas County.
Members of the local executive committee will explain the details of the prison realignment and answer questions during the meeting.
The committee is composed of Chief Probation Officer Sharon Reinert, Superior Court Judge Ira Kaufman, District Attorney David Hollister, Sheriff Greg Hagwood, Alcohol and Drug Administrator Mimi Hall and Public Defender Douglas Prouty.
