The State Department of Corrections is going to start pouring over 9,200 outstanding warrants for parole violators to decide if they can be dropped.
This comes amidst state prison and jail overcrowding. It's part of a plan to clean-house on parole records that go back decades.
Central Coast News spoke with Corrections spokesman Jeffrey Callison who said there is no need to worry.
Many of the parole violations were committed decades ago or some of the offenders may be dead.
Callison said the state will start reviewing the less serious offenders first. Sex offenders are excluded in the efforts.
