Los Angeles County Mulls Starting Over with Re-alignment Programs

Service providers that work with repeat offenders in Los Angeles County, released from state prison under the AB 109 realignment plan, are fighting for their jobs. Dozens defended their work to the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors today. Responding to reports that a majority of the low-level offenders released to L.A. County under realignment are not receiving "reentry" services at all, some members of the board are calling for a shake-up in the programs. Pacifica's Dan Fritz reports from Los Angeles.
