District Attorney Dan Dow announced today the reinstatement of a Temporary Restraining Order (TRO) against the CDCR which prevents the department from awarding custody credits to so-called “nonviolent” second-strikers.
District Attorney Dan Dow announced today that the Honorable Judith S. Craddick, Sacramento County Superior Court, has reinstated the TRO against the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDCR) preventing CDCR from awarding 66% custody credits to so-called “nonviolent” second-strikers until an appeal is filed.
“I am grateful that the temporary restraining order is reinstated to prevent this reckless policy from being implemented at this time,” said Dan Dow, District Attorney. “We will continue to speak out on behalf of crime victims and advocate wherever necessary for the safety of all residents of California.”
This would allow the Third District Court of Appeals to consider the issues raised in the trial court’s previous denial of a preliminary injunction. On December 30, 2021, the Honorable Ray Cadei issued the TRO against CDCR preventing them from awarding those additional credits. On January 20, 2022, the Court declined to allow CDCR to begin issuing those credits while awaiting appeal. This morning the Court reissued the TRO pending the filing of an appeal by 28 elected District Attorneys.
