“She was admitted from Los Angeles County on Aug. 20, 2019, with a 3-year sentence for second-degree robbery,” according the statement. “She arrived at the Community Prisoner Mother Program on Jan. 21, 2020, and was scheduled to be released to parole in December.”

The CDCR Community Prisoner Mother Program houses 24 beds and provides substance abuse treatment to female offenders designated “non-serious” and “non-violent,” the agency said.
“The participants have sentences of no more than five years,” the CDCR statement said. “Women in the program are pregnant or have two or fewer children under age six living with them at the facility.
“Since 1977, 99 percent of all offenders who have left an adult institution, camp, or community-based program without permission have been apprehended,” the statement added.
