Ventura County – Anyone who has ever been convicted of a felony in the state of California and is subsequently released as a Post Release Offender, is fully aware of the terms of the California Public Safety Realignment Act of 2011 and the legislative provisions of Assembly Bill 109. That’s the law which provides for early release of so-called “non-serious” offenders under terms restricting their access to firearms and ammunition.

On June 14, 2019, 29-year-old Ventura resident Jacob Aydelotte, was arrested for possession of a handgun and ammunition while on probation for an earlier firearms violation. According to Ventura County Sheriff’s Department spokesman Deputy Robert Rawston, that arrest lead to his incarceration at Ventura County Jail “for numerous felony and misdemeanor gun charges” as well as for violation of his probation terms.

Almost a year later, on the afternoon of April 7th—while Aydelotte was once again at liberty under the terms of AB 109—deputies attached to the Ventura County Post Release Offender Supervision unit made an unannounced visit at his residence.

A brief search of the premises lead to the discovery of “a controlled substance” and yet another pistol and ammunition. Aydelotte was cuffed and transported once again to Ventura County Jail where he was—once again—booked on charges of Possession of a Firearm by a Convicted Felon, Possession of Ammunition, and Unlawful Transfer of a Firearm, along with Violation of Terms of Post Release Supervision. He remains in custody on a no-bail hold.
