Authorities Apprehend Offender Who Walked Away from Stockton Re-Entry Program

STOCKTON – California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDCR) agents today apprehended Martha Lupian, an offender who walked away from the Custody to Community Transitional Reentry Program (CCTRP) in Stockton on June 30.

Lupian was taken into custody about 2 a.m. by CDCR’s Special Service Unit. Lupian was found in a homeless encampment on El Dorado Street and apprehended without incident. She was transported to Folsom Women’s Facility and the case will be referred to the San Joaquin District Attorney’s Office for consideration of escape charges.

Lupian was discovered missing when a CCTRP facility staff member was notified that she was not at her approved work location at a fast food restaurant in Stockton. Lupian was received by CDCR in July 2017 from Contra Costa County with a six-year sentence for assault with force likely to produce great bodily injury, inflicting great bodily injury, and personal use of a weapon.

CCTRP allows eligible participants to serve the remainder of their sentence in a community program in lieu of confinement in state prison. CCTRP provides a range of rehabilitative services that assist with alcohol and drug recovery, employment, education, housing, family reunification and social support.
