Brown has allowed parole for 1,963 LIFERs — more inmates than 4 previous governors released, but....


The LA Newspaper Article http://www.latimes.com/local/california/la-me-ff-pol-lifer-parole-20141228-story.html#page=1  states:     
As more inmates are released from prison, more parolees return!


A Stanford University study found that among 860 inmates with life sentences who were paroled from 1995 to 2010, five (5) returned to prison with new felony charges. Since 2011, at least 50 inmates with life sentences, including 33 paroled under Brown, returned to prison or jail, accused of drug use, domestic violence, theft, even attempted murder.

LIFER Support Groups are available to help LIFER's not to relapse to their OLD ways! With more LIFER getting Grants of Parole by Governor Brown and his Commissioners (aka "The BOARD")  let's make sure LIFERs do not disappoint the upcoming LIFER candidates and let's keep the Recidivism rate of Lifers UNDER 1%. 

It is more crucial now  then ever to provide LIFERs with help after their Release. There are Newsletters and great Support Systems throughout California for Lifers. This includes Transitional Housings, such as:
