"Supreme Court orders California to slash prison population by more than 30,000"

Jessica Levinson is quoted in this article in the CSM.

Here is an excerpt:

“Constitutional violations do not wait for recessions or booms. A violation is a violation regardless of whether the state has a surplus or is on the edge of bankruptcy,” says Jessica Levinson ... “It is also time for legislators and members of the electorate to focus not only on the fact that prisons are overcrowded, but why they are so overcrowded,” she says.
