Settlement Reached in Orange County Jail Investigation

June 2, 2022

Disability Rights California (DRC) has entered into a settlement with the County of Orange and the Orange County Sheriff’s Department to put into place a remedial plan that will lead to important changes to policies and conditions in the Orange County Jail. The County was not providing equal access to programs to incarcerated people with disabilities, was keeping incarcerated people locked in cells for most or all of the day, and was placing incarcerated people in restrictive, high-security units because of their LGBTQ identity. The remedial plan will significantly improve conditions in the jail system and the County’s treatment of all incarcerated people, including people with disabilities and people who identify as LGBTQ .
