WHO: Inmate Timothy Charles Bock, 61
WHAT: Was denied release yesterday, Feb. 25, 2013, at a Proposition 36 resentencing hearing by the Honorable Richard M. King. Bock is being held at Richard J. Donovan Correctional Facility, San Diego.
Senior Deputy District Attorney Heather Brown opposed Bock’s release on behalf of the Orange County District Attorney’s Office (OCDA).
At yesterday’s hearing, the Court reviewed Bock’s criminal background and with the OCDA that the inmate would be an unreasonable risk to society based on his continued drug use while incarcerated. The Court concluded that Bock would continue to commit property crimes as he had done in the past to provide him money necessary to satisfy his drug addiction if released.
