L.A.’s Women’s Reentry Court

Oct. 24th

Judge  Michael Tynan of the Los Angeles Superior Court, runs the Second Chance Women’s Re-entry Court program, perhaps the only reentry court in the nation for women facing a return to state prison. Typically charged with nonviolent felonies, these women plead guilty to pending charges and enter treatment instead of being returned to state prison. The results have been extraordinary. According to an October 19th article in the Los Angels Times,  approximately 200 women  have enterred the program since its inception in 2007, and “overwhelmingly, the women are making it through treatment and going on to lead crime-free lives”.
