The Youth Justice Coalition has heard from two reliable sources that LA County Probation Chief Jerry Powers announced to other probation chiefs on Friday that he was going to resign, and also that his resignation could be announced today.

Powers has been under investigation by the media and by a law firm hired by the LA County Supervisors that he allegedly hired a woman who he was also having a relationship with, violating county laws regarding hiring your
own partners and family members for a position you supervise. Ironically, Powers was brought into LA to clean up the department’s messy hiring practices.

County Supervisors and The LA Times received an anonymous letter
