    California gov allows parole for transgender inmate for operation

    SACRAMENTO, Calif. – Gov. Jerry Brown is allowing parole for a transgender inmate who is trying to force California to become the first state to pay for sex reassignment surgery.

    A federal judge in April ordered the state to provide the surgery, which had been scheduled for July. It was delayed after the state appealed.


    The governor's office said Friday that Brown was taking no action on the Board of Parole Hearings' recommendation to release Michelle-Lael Norsworthy, which means her parole will proceed.

    The decision makes it less likely that the 51-year-old will be able to have surgery funded by the prison before she is released. Parole board spokesman Luis Patino said it usually takes about a week for an inmate to be released after the governor allows a parole to proceed.

    Brown decided Norsworthy is no longer dangerous, 30 years after she fatally shot Franklin Gordon Liefer Jr., 26, following an argument in a Fullerton bar in November 1985.

    Norsworthy, then 21, was convicted of second-degree murder after she shot Liefer three times. He died six weeks later.

    She is being held at Mule Creek State Prison, a men's prison in Ione, near Sacramento. Prison records refer to her by her birth name of Jeffrey Bryan Norsworthy, though she has lived as a woman since the 1990s.

    She was diagnosed with gender identity disorder in 1999 and began taking female hormones. She began asking the corrections department for the surgery in 2012 after learning a judge for the first time had ordered Massachusetts to provide an inmate with the procedure. However, that decision was overturned on appeal in December, and the U.S. Supreme Court declined to intervene.

    The 9th Circuit agreed to hear California's appeal of U.S. District Judge Jon Tigar's ruling and a hearing is scheduled for Thursday. The appellate court noted that the case raises serious legal questions about whether denying the surgery violates Norsworthy's constitutional rights against cruel and unusual punishment.

    The California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation says it has met all of its legal requirements by providing Norsworthy with counseling and hormone therapy.

    The state filed paperwork in federal court Friday saying it has agreed to provide sex reassignment surgery for another inmate, Shiloh Quine, 56, to settle a separate lawsuit.

    "CDCR evaluates every case individually, and in the Quine case, every medical doctor and mental health clinician who has reviewed this case, including two independent mental health experts, determined that this surgery is medically necessary for Quine," corrections department spokesman Jeffrey Callison said in an emailed statement.

    Quine, formerly known as Rodney James Quine, is serving a life sentence for murder, kidnapping and robbery.

    Norsworthy testified at her parole hearing in May that she accepts responsibility for her crime. She said at the time, she was "pretty much drinking every day all day" but is now sober and attends Alcoholics Anonymous meetings in prison.

    She said she also takes steps to control her anger and make better judgments.

    Interesting and original new strategy to increase your chances of parole!! Going forward, i wonder how often this strategy will be employed, and how successful it will be...

    It's no wonder everyone else in the country thinks all California's are nuts. We keep electing shit like this to be the governor. Not to mention all the other Crack pot politicians we have floating around. Every time I go to vote I hope for a change but always get let down.

    the parole board recommended she be released and she had served 30 years for second degree murder. why should the governor step in to keep her in prison?

    :scratch:

    Wouldn't this mean that the parole board was the one releasing her?

    I actually don't have a problem with this.

    There were about 2000 others that were paroled by Gov. Brown and, of that 2000, 33 of them re-offended.

    The odds are low that this weirdo will re-offend.

    Now he can go fund his own sex reassignment surgery.

    In CA, the Gov. has the final word.

    If he doesn't contest it, it goes through.

    As a Californian, I don't entirely disagree with you.

    A good quake should clear the state out a bit.

    It happened after the 1994 Northridge quake.

    A lot of the riff-raff went back to wherever they came from.

    My question would be whether his wanting a sex change influenced the decision, would we release Charley if he decided he wanted to be Caitlyn Manson?

    Maybe it influenced it a bit in a sense that Gov. Brown didn't want to pay for the sex change and saw the opportunity to get out of it but, the parole committee does the vetting so, he went with their recommendation.

    Charlie ain't getting out no matter what.

    CONVICTED CHOWCHILLA SCHOOL BUS KIDNAPPER RELEASED ON PAROLE

    Bay City News
    Friday, August 07, 2015 01:52PM
    San Luis Obispo, Calif. --
    One of the three men who kidnapped a busload of Chowchilla schoolchildren in 1976 and buried them in a quarry in Livermore for ransom was paroled from the California Men's Colony in San Luis Obispo at 5:15 a.m. Friday, state prison officials said.

    The parole for 63-year-old James Schoenfeld, who had been behind bars for 29 years, was expected because last week Gov. Jerry Brown decided to let stand a parole board's ruling on April 1 to grant him parole.

    Brown had 120 days to approve the panel's decision or ask for all 12 members of the panel to review it but that period expired at midnight on July 30 without Brown taking any action.

    Brown didn't have the authority to reverse the panel's decision because he only has that authority in murder cases.

    The state Board of Parole Hearings' legal staff reviewed the panel's ruling and concluded that it was consistent with the evidence that was presented at Schoenfeld's parole hearing, his attorney, Scott Handelman, said.

    Schoenfeld, his brother Richard Schoenfeld, 60, and Frederick Woods were in their early to mid 20s when they ambushed a busload of schoolchildren from Dairyland Union School in Chowchilla, a small farm community about 35 miles northwest of Fresno in Madera County, on July 15, 1976, according to prosecutors.

    The men left the bus camouflaged in a creek bed and drove the children and bus driver Ed Ray about 100 miles to the California Rock and Gravel Quarry in Livermore in Alameda County.

    They sealed their victims in a large van that had been buried in a cave at the quarry and fitted to keep the children and driver hostage, prosecutors said.

    The kidnappers, all from wealthy families in the Peninsula communities of Atherton and Portola Valley, then demanded a $5 million ransom for the schoolchildren and Ray.

    The hostages escaped from the buried van a little more than a day after they were first kidnapped when Ray and the two oldest children piled mattresses to the top of the van and forced their way out.

    The Schoenfeld brothers and Woods received life sentences after pleading guilty in Alameda County Superior Court in 1977 to 27 counts of kidnapping for ransom.
