Early prison releases of the kind ordered by a federal court panel pose no threat to public safety, according to experts who testified on the matter the last time it came up in California. In those 2009 hearings, five experts on crime, punishment and prisons told the court that allowing inmates with good behavior to shorten their prison terms by several months has little, if any, effect on crime in the community. "There is no difference in recidivism rates by length of stay," James Austin, a Washington-based corrections consultant, testified at the time.

Producers Gary Stewart, James Austin and David McLees have arranged the 90 songs in the series by era and pop genres.
