A plan to cut back on the number of arrest warrants for parole violators has the Butte County Undersheriff concerned. The state reportedly announed the plan this week that it will review outstanding warrants of parole violators and try to weed out older ones in hopes of saving costs. But Butte Undersheriff Cory Honea says if a parolee doesn't know he's no longer facing arrest, it could cause problems.
The plan was revealed this week by the Los Angeles Times where the state will weed out older, less urgent cases and focus on dangerous parolees. That review deals with some 9 thousand cases and is expected to get underway soon.
