FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Case #96HF1017

Date: June 21, 2018

MEDIA ADVISORY

WHO: Jeen “Gina” Han, 44

WHAT: Was released from Central California Women’s Facility in Chowchilla on parole after the Board of Parole Hearings granted parole at her initial hearing on Oct. 31, 2017. Han was convicted of conspiring to murder her twin sister in 1998 and sentenced to 26 years to life in state prison. Due to Han’s unreasonable risk of danger to society, Orange County District Attorney (OCDA) Tony Rackauckas expressed opposition to Han’s parole and petitioned Governor Jerry Brown to use executive power to reverse the Board’s decision.

District Attorney Rackauckas stated, “Jeen ‘Gina’ Han is a manipulative and dangerous individual who hatched an elaborate plan to have her own twin sister murdered.  She is a career criminal with a long rap sheet of offenses including second degree burglary, grand theft, check forgery, receiving stolen property, and more.  Han has been diagnosed with borderline personality disorder with antisocial traits, a condition she has chosen not to address or seek treatment for.  She poses a serious public safety risk, which is why my office urged the Parole Board to reconsider.  It is disappointing the OCDA’s request to keep her in prison was denied.”

The full letter, “Letter to Governor Jerry Brown Opposing Parole of Jeen Han,” is available at www.orangecountyda.org by selecting Letters under the Reports pull-down menu.
