SACRAMENTO, Calif. (KCRA) —The Sacramento County District Attorney has begun publishing the names of parolees released under a new state program designed to reduce prison overcrowding.

So far, the list includes 72 people classified as nonviolent second-strikers released in Sacramento County.

"Many of these (people) have histories of violence," District Attorney Anne Marie Schubert said. "And that's what I think is concerning with these types of individuals and these early releases."
