To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the California Public Records Act (California Government Code §§ 6250), I hereby request the following records:

All administrative investigations since Jan. 1, 2013 into allegations of sexual abuse in correctional facilities administered by your agency. Title 115.71 (f) of the federal Prison Rape Elimination Act (PREA) requires that all administrative investigations "shall be documented in written reports that include a description of the physical and testimonial evidence, the reasoning behind credibility assessments, and investigative facts and findings."

All criminal investigations since Jan. 1, 2013 of allegations of sexual abuse in correctional facilities administered by your agency. Title 115.71 (g) of the PREA requires that all criminal investigations "shall be documented in a written report that contains a thorough description of physical, testimonial, and documentary evidence and attaches copies of all documentary evidence where feasible."

Title 115.71 (i) of the PREA requires that correctional agencies maintain copies of administrative and criminal investigations for "as long as the alleged abuser is incarcerated or employed by the agency, plus five years."

I understand that the documents I am requesting contain sensitive, personal information, and I expect that you will redact names and other identifying facts.

As a member of the news media, I request that all fees be waived.

The requested documents will be made available to the general public, and this request is not being made for commercial purposes.

In the event that there are fees, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.

Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 10 calendar days, as the statute requires.

Sincerely,

Nathanael King
