Los Angeles, May 14, 2021 – The Association of Deputy District Attorneys (ADDA) applauds the 41 elected District Attorneys who stood up for the rule of law and victims of crime in requesting the Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDCR) to repeal the “emergency” regulations designed to give 76,000 inmates, including violent and repeat felons, early releases from prison.
The “emergency” regulations are yet another in a disturbing series of attempts by certain elected officials and unelected bureaucrats to usurp the legislative and initiative process by unilaterally changing the law to fit their own views. As these 41 elected District Attorneys highlight, the CDCR decision is contrary to the Penal Code, and there is no legitimate legal basis for the enactment of the “emergency” regulations.
