Judge Orders Calif. To Move Inmates at Risk of Valley Fever
On Monday, U.S. District Judge Thelton Henderson ordered California to move several thousand inmates at risk of contracting valley fever out of Pleasant Valley and Avenal state prisons. The order gives the state seven days to begin the transfers and 90 days to complete the task. In addition, no new inmates who are considered at-risk will be sent to either prison.
