Colin Rigley has a funny story and photo in the News Brief section of this week's New Times (http://www.newtimesslo.com/ ) showing Dan DeVaul standing at the reception windows at the County Jail, hoping to get arrested and so go serve his 88 day jail sentence (which was levied when he was found "guilty" of code violations for housing homeless people in sub-standard, overcrowded, illegal, dangerous, code-violating conditions at Sunny Acres, a clean and sober recovery program on his ranch in SLO.)
Sheriff said, No Deal. He'd have to wait until a court order was issued to arrest him and haul him off to the pokey.
The funny part? If you read Ron Crawford's email (posted below on Feb 22) the Sheriff's jail facility is NOW overcrowded and so may well be in violation of County code. Which is why the BOS voted to spend $10 million to build a jail facility to relieve all that likely illegal overcrowding.
But there's Dan, guilty of code violations trying to get into a jail that's . . . . guilty of code violations?
So, who should issue a code violation citation to the Sheriff? Dan?
