California Prisoners Released Amid Coronavirus Concerns Re-Arrested

We recently posted about criminal re-offenders in Florida and New York, but these instances are not limited to the east coast.  Now, two California men released due to coronavirus concerns are back in prison, accused of committing crimes shortly after getting out. In fact, one of them was charged with carjacking about 40 minutes after leaving his jail cell.

Thousands of California inmates had been released under an emergency order on April 13th to combat the potential of coronavirus spread through the jails. While some agree, others, including prosecutors and sheriffs, have serious concerns about an increase in crime in the state.
