Offender who walked away from Community Reentry Program turns herself in

SAN DIEGO – Lorraine Roman, an offender who walked away from the Custody to Community Transitional Reentry Program (CCTRP) in San Diego on July 13, surrendered to the Los Angeles Police Department Rampart Station today at 4 a.m.

She was transported to California Institution for Women in Corona and the case will be referred to the San Diego County District Attorney’s Office for consideration of escape charges.

Roman was discovered missing on July 13 when a CCTRP facility staff member was notified that Lorraine Roman’s monitoring device was not in motion. Staff searched the area but was unable to locate the device and Roman had not reported to her approved work location at a restaurant in San Diego. CDCR’s Office of Correctional Safety pursued Roman until the arrest.

She was received by CDCR in April 2018 from Los Angeles County with a four-year sentence for first-degree burglary, a second-strike offense.

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.
