Offender Walks Away from Los Angeles Re-entry Program

LOS ANGELES — California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDCR) officials are looking for an offender who walked away from a Los Angeles-area re-entry program on Saturday, May 28.
After being notified that Janathen Sufle’s GPS device had been tampered with, Male Community Re-entry Program (MCRP) staff initiated an emergency count and facility search.

Notification was made to local law enforcement agencies. Agents from CDCR’s Office of Correctional Safety were dispatched to locate and apprehend Sufle.

Sufle, 28, is a Native American male with black hair and brown eyes. He is 5 feet, 7 inches tall and weighs 142 pounds. He was admitted to CDCR from Los Angeles County on Sept. 1, 2015, to serve a three-year sentence for first-degree burglary. He was scheduled to be released to parole in September 2016.

Sufle was transferred from the California Institution for Men to the MCRP in Los Angeles County on May 19, 2016. The MCRP allows eligible offenders committed to state prison to serve the end of their sentences in the re-entry center and provides them the programs and tools necessary to transition from custody to the community. It is a voluntary program for male offenders who have approximately 120 days left to serve. The program links offenders to a range of community-based rehabilitative services that assist with substance use disorders, mental health care, medical care, employment, education, housing, family reunification and social support.

Anyone who sees Sufle or has any knowledge of his whereabouts should immediately contact law enforcement or call 911.
