UNION Member articles published to end mistreatment of the mentally ill in CMF Vacaville Prison, focusing on the James Diesso case. More than 800 letters were sent to the California Department of Corrections by UNION members as complaints. Diesso was transferred to Folsom Prison which is not a hospital and is now headed for Corcoran Prison. He is on trial for murder as a sane person but due to the publicity we've generated, the Judge is re-thinking this ruling. It will all go to court in December.
The Chief Medical Officer, Larry Dizmang was "demoted" to headquarters with a promotion.
