Assemblyman and Chief Republican Whip Dan Logue announced that Governor Brown signed his Assembly Bill 44, which would give local law enforcement more notice prior to the release of a violent felon into the community.
“It was primarily aimed at serial killers like someone released in Susanville without any notice whatsoever. My legislation required that at least a 60 day notice be sent to a county so the county to can vet that criminal to see if there are any victims or any problems in that community before they relocates somebody like that on parole.”
“Violent felons shouldn’t be dumped in communities on short notice,” added Logue. “AB 44 will ensure the safety of our communities by helping law enforcement do their job.” AB 44 will go into effect on January 1st, 2012.
