His charges are simple possession for personal use. It's been a rough year and at the time he was getting in trouble and given prop 36, he just could not get his head together and get himself enrolled in a program. On 10/5 he was sentenced to 16 months to be served at county level under AB 109. I know they started giving day for day credit which he received, but are they eligible for early release like the other county inmates? I know people sentenced to county can do only 15-25% of their time, but their crimes seem so much more severe in nature (Felony DUI with hit and run, weapons charge with gang enhancement, etc). I agree some jail time was necessary to "clean him up", I just wish the judge would have taken advantage of the new split sentencing and given him time in rehab as well.
