STOCKTON — Prison officials have reset a convicted killer's parole date amid vocal opposition throughout Northern California.
Loren Herzog had been set for parole last Sunday, prompting protest over his settling in San Joaquin County and complaints about the early release.
Officials then found the court had incorrectly calculated his prison sentence, and prosecutors now say they've been told the new release date is Sept. 16.
Herzog was accused of taking part in serial killings during the 1980s and 90s.
His alleged accomplice, Wesley Shermantine, is on death row. But Herzog's three murder convictions were overturned, and he instead pleaded guilty in one killing.
It's still uncertain where Herzog will settle. Sheriffs in Modoc, Tehama and San Joaquin counties have opposed plans to send him to their jurisdictions.
