Three state prisons in Kings County are each understaffed of officers — a snapshot of the need to hire throughout California.

California’s prison system plans to hire 7,000 officers over the next few years, said spokesman Bill Sessa.

“We’re looking to re-fill positions because of retirement and to ease the strain of overtime,” Sessa said.

Orange County District Attorney’s office representatives will be at a hearing Tuesday to oppose the parole of an inmate who stabbed a 16-year-old boy to death at a house party in La Habra in 1991.

Robert Aguirre Jr., 42, is currently an inmate of Kern Valley State Prison in Delano. He is scheduled for a parole hearing at the prison Tuesday morning before a board with the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation, according to the Orange County District Attorney’s Office.
