As per a recent WWL report, another one of our esteemed governor's early released prisoners has ended up right back in jail not long after his release.

Alton Brooks Jr. was most recently arrested Friday after Kenner Police said he was shoplifting at a Winn Dixie on Williams Boulevard.

The 49-year-old man was released Nov. 1, along with hundreds of other inmates who got another shot at life due to a new set of state laws that overhauled the criminal justice system.

This, along with a string of other early released prisoners, have recidivated since release from the state prison system.
