The Infamous San Quentin Prison, Once Holding the Nation’s Largest Death Row Population, Will Now Emphasize Rehab

From an AP story by Janie Har and Sophie Austin headlined “California will remake San Quentin prison, emphasizing rehab”:

The infamous state prison on San Francisco Bay that has been home to the largest death row population in the United States will be transformed into a lockup where less-dangerous prisoners will receive education, training and rehabilitation, California officials said.

The inmates serving death sentences at San Quentin State Prison will be moved elsewhere in the California penitentiary system, Gov. Gavin Newsom’s office said, and it will be renamed the San Quentin Rehabilitation Center. Most of California’s nearly 700 inmates facing such sentences are imprisoned at the facility, though some have already been moved.
