Paramore was committed to CDCR on December 5, 2012 from San Diego County to serve a four-year sentence for child endangerment and attempting to introduce a controlled substance into a jail/prison.

Pena was committed to CDCR on January 24, 2013 from Los Angeles County to serve a two-year sentence for first-degree burglary.

Serrano was committed to CDCR on January 21, 2010 from Kings County to serve a two-year, eight-month sentence for possession of a controlled substance for sale.

CDCR has sent staff and resources to locate and apprehend the inmates. The California Highway Patrol and local law enforcement have been contacted for assistance.

To be eligible for the program inmates must be low-security, serving a sentence for a non-serious, non-violent offense and must have 36 months or less to serve. On average, female inmates serve approximately 10 months and some as long as 16 months in the rehabilitative center.
