Another alternative to San Diego county custody is Re-Entry Court. This is meant for parolees or PRCS offenders who commit a new PC1170 (h) felony and needs substance abuse treatment, a tailored case plan and high level of supervision.
The screening procedure is handled by the Re-Entry Court team Lisa Missett (DA) and Sue Clemens (PD).
The eligibility criteria require that the offender be a legal resident of San Diego County. The offender must agree to participate. The current offense is non-violent, non-serious, and non-sexual. The current offense is PC 1170 (h) eligible where offender must have the mental capacity to make discernments and must actively participate in the program. The offender must be on parole or PRCS at time of current offense.
The exclusionary factors to prevent this alternative to San Diego county custody is if the current offense or prison commitment is for a serious or violent felony (PC 667.5(c) or PC 1192.7(c)). There must not be any felony holds, detainers, warrants, interstate CDCR case, documented member of CDCR-recognized prison gang, or active CI. Furthermore, there must be no PC 451.1 (Arson), PC 186.22 allegations, or offense pursuant to family code 6211.
The program lasts 12-24 months. The offender must stipulate to local prison term but if execution is suspended then he or she will be placed on probation. Successful completion may lead to early termination of probation, but not dismissal of charges. Violations result in graduated sanctions and ultimately termination and execution of term of local imprisonment.
