    It’s so sad they closed down Leo Chesney. This? program helped the women who went through there. Goodbye Leo Chesney! 09/30/2011 was your final day, maybe you will re-open….

    I think this is a great program that more states should offer. What good does it do to send an addict to prison where they are going? to get no treatment and not know that there is a better way of life for them? Studies have shown that addicts who get treatment in jail are less likely to reoffend, this should be nationally offered for women as well as men. Honestly it’s simple economics and common sense.

    This information is now outdated, the Leo Chesney Center now goes up to 60 months for? a inmate and has increased the security level of the facility from level 1 to 2, to levels 1,2, and 3. TI-Sat also has been totally redesigned since then, and the facility can hold up to 318 not 200.

    The state of California is remiss in not creating more opportunities for low-level female offenders. These programs will eventually SAVE taxpayer money and reduce recidivism. The women’s prisons in Calfornia are Level 4 hells, and are a horrible place for low-level offenders and their families. It also costs us so much more than these places do. NRubinstein, VSPW Inmate?
