Offender Walks Away from Community Prisoner Mother Program

POMONA — California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDCR) officials are looking for Alexandria Sorenson, an offender who walked away from the Community Prisoner Mother Program (CPMP) in Pomona on Tuesday, June 18.

Sorenson was discovered missing at 9:10 p.m. from her room. Staff conducted an immediate search of the area, as well as an emergency count. CDCR’s Office of Correctional Safety agents were dispatched to locate and apprehend Sorenson.

Sorenson, 23, is 5 feet, 8 inches tall and weighs 207 pounds. She was received by CDCR from San Bernardino County in December 2018 with a six-year sentence for first-degree burglary. She was placed in the CPMP in Pomona in June.

Anyone who sees Sorenson or has any knowledge of her whereabouts should immediately contact law enforcement or call 911.

The CPMP is a community substance abuse treatment program where non-serious, nonviolent female offenders may serve a sentence up to six years. The CPMP has been in existence since 1985 and is mandated by Penal Code (PC) Section 3410. Women are placed in the program from any of the CDCR female institutions. Pursuant to PC 3410, program eligibility requires that the female offender have up to two children less than six years of age, have no active felony holds, nor any prior escapes. The female offender must sign a voluntary placement agreement to enter the program, followed by three years of parole. The treatment program addresses substance issues, emotional functioning, self-esteem, parenting skills, and employment skills.
