Attorney General File #: 2007-040
Prisoner Rights Act of 2008
September 11, 2007
This initiative would expand prisoners’ legal rights in several ways. The measure repeals an existing statute that permits correctional officials to prohibit inmates from receiving obscene written materials. In addition, it states that the only restrictions on inmate rights that are permitted are those denied them by the state or federal Constitutions or the state Penal Code.
