Attorney General Candidate Eric Early Blasts Court Ruling On Prop. 57 That Could Release Thousands of Sex Offenders From Prison
LOS ANGELES, CA – Attorney General candidate Eric Early criticized a recent court ruling that could lead to the release of potentially thousands of sex offenders under Prop. 57, the disastrous and deceitful initiative supported by incumbent Attorney General Xavier Becerra.
“This is another example of how extremists like Becerra put serving their soft-on-crime ideology above the real-life safety of ordinary Californians,” said Early. “Becerra and other Prop. 57 supporters knew it would turn felons loose into our neighborhoods. They supported Prop. 57 and misrepresented it to voters.”
In 2016, extremists like then-Attorney General Kamala Harris raised millions for a deceptive campaign to pass Proposition 57, misrepresenting it to voters as a cost-saving measure that would save taxpayers millions and apply only to “non-violent” offenders. Instead, violent felons are being released from prison years before their sentences expire, and the cost to law enforcement has been exorbitant.
Prop. 57 supporters told voters its early parole provisions wouldn’t apply to sex offenders. Last week, a Superior Court judge agreed with a sex offender-rights group’s incredible claim that excluding sex offenders from Prop. 57’s early parole provisions was contrary to “the intent of the voters.” This ruling could lead to the early release of more than half of the 20,000 sentenced sex offenders in California – maybe even those convicted of pimping children.
“Another broken promise by the politicians ruling Sacramento,” said Early.
“Californians of all political persuasions have had enough of this madness,” said Early. “It’s time to end one-party rule, toss out Xavier Becerra and put the Attorney General back on the side of law and order for the working citizens of this state.”
“That’s why I am running for Attorney General,” said Early.
