Nielsen Blasts Judges Panel

A panel of federal judges is ordering the state to immediately take steps to reduce its prison population by ten-thousand inmates.  The judges say they’re compelled to enforce the constitutional rights of all persons, including prisoners. State Senator Jim Nielsen, who represents Nevada County, has been against any kind of early release from the beginning.
