For the past 6 years, Sanford Jossen has represented people who have been kept in jail too long due to calculation errors in their sentences. This has happened to hundreds of people. If you have been kept in jail too long due to a calculation error in the term of your sentence, the Law Offices of Sanford Jossen can help.
In February 2013, a class action was filed in California state court against the State of California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (“CDCR”) and others. The Complaint can be found here. The case seeks money damages, and other relief, for a proposed class of individuals who were allegedly over-detained as a result of the Defendants’ failure to correctly calculate their prison release dates. The Defendants deny the allegations.
The lead plaintiff has dismissed his claim and is no longer participating in the lawsuit. The case will be dismissed if a new lead plaintiff is not added to the case. Therefore, if you were over-detained while in state prison, or received “Kemper” credit against the length of your parole when you were released, please contact Sanford Jossen at the firm so that they might talk with you about your experience.
