Daily Corrections Clips

CALIFORNIA PRISONS

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — The wardens at California's two major women's prisons have retired amid allegations of pervasive problems at both institutions, including sexual abuse of female inmates at one prison and suicides at the other.

The complaints are the latest problem for the corrections department, and come months after the California inspector general found a culture of racism and abuse at a men's prison. A series of lawsuits in recent years forced the state to lower its inmate population and cede control of prisoner health care to a federal receiver. 

CALIFORNIA PAROLE

Santa Rosa police arrested a man known as a “high-risk” sex offender Thursday night after he was suspected of entering the grounds of the Sonoma County Fair, which police said amounted to a parole violation.

The man, identified Andrew Lloyd Olsen, 32, was arrested at 10:30 p.m. Thursday about three miles from the fairgrounds, near the intersection of Summerfield Road and Montgomery Drive.
