State Prisoners Move to CountiesDownload audio (MP3)
Starting this week, state prisoners are being moved to county jails or probation to serve out their sentences. It's all part of a plan called realignment, an attempt to reduce the state prison population to meet a federal court order. Counties are struggling to comply, and some worry public safety is in jeopardy.
