In January, Deangelo Rashard Mitchell was released from jail even though he is a reputed drug dealer. His bond was $150,000, and the assurance was given to authorities that every movement made by the North Charleston man would be caught by satellite monitoring. Prosecutors now say, however, that Mitchell went wherever he wanted at any time of the night and completely dismissed his house arrest conditions. He is accused of causing his brother's death by forcing him to ingest cocaine at a fatal dose last year.


States Seek Alternative Methods to Cut Prison Costs

January 17th, 2011 | Written by Bail Bonds Blog

Washington – In response to steadily decreasing revenue and budgets, states across the nation are seeking new, alternative ways to cut costs. Proposed solutions: Squeeze savings out of the state prisons. In Washington, state prisons will go on lock-down one day per month, confining inmates to cells and adjacent living areas. This solution allows prisons to cut back on resources and allows wardens to send some staff members home without pay. Trial tests of the lock-downs/furloughs were executed in November with success, prompting the full implementation of the program one day per month from January to June 2011. Projected savings equal approximately $1 million. “It’s working as designed,” said Dan Pacholke, deputy director of prisons at the Washington State Department of Corrections in Olympia. http://in.reuters.com/article/idINIndia-54286020110120


California Establishes Medical Parole Program for Non-Functioning Ill Inmates

December 27th, 2010 | Written by Bail Bonds Blog

California – Beginning in 2011, California will establish a medical parole program for inmates who are comatose and physically incapacitated on a permanent basis. Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger passed the bill, SB 1399 by Sen. Mark Leno, into law on September 29, 2010. In a state of financial crisis, California has been seeking ways to reduce spending with a number of legislation initiatives involving the prison system. Currently, California houses the highest prison population in the United States and spends approximately $11,000 per inmate on healthcare (compared to $2,750 spent per inmate on healthcare in Texas). SB 1399 is projected to save the state approximately $46 million annually. The medical parole bill exempts any inmate who has been sentenced to death, life without parole or those sentenced under the Three-Strikes-Law. The bill will include a screening process to make sure that public safety is not jeopardized by the early release of inmates. Thus far, California has identified 32 candidates for the program whose average annual healthcare and guard costs total almost 2 million per person. Says Sen. Mark Leno, “I would rather keep 100 school teachers employed than continue to waste millions of taxpayer dollars on incarcerating 10 severely incapacitated inmates. Across the nation, 36 states, including Texas, have medical parole programs for inmates who are so seriously ill that they could not possibly threaten public safety. Especially given our fiscal crisis, it is time for California to do the same.” http://articles.latimes.com/2010/sep/29/local/la-me-0929-arnold-bills-20100929
