Data collected by the Board of State and Community Corrections and analyzed by Sacramento News and Review shows that Sacramento County’s aging jails are glutted with people who are presumed innocent. Through the first six months of this year, 58 percent of the approximately 1,800 people in county lockup on a daily basis had yet to be sentenced. That percentage has remained static for more than two years.

People who are released without charges still spent an average of 32.5 days in jail, the review found. Those who had their cases dismissed in court averaged more than 39 days in custody.

Moved to the Big Tomata in the nineties from San Francisco. No Suburbs for me with its single colored houses and lawns and the excitement of pulling out my trash can once a week. I'm a CityFella , a part time New Yorker. I'm happiest in the Center City where people the streets and people are alive. I'm still waiting to buy a 34th floor condo somewhere downtown/Midtown with a nightclub. "Hurry I'm old" My politics are somewhere in the middle with a needle that constantly moves. I'm too liberal to be a Republican and too conservative to be a Democrat. Everything interests me . I've come to love Sacratomato, Its a nice town in cheap sensible shoes .
