The County of Los Angeles Board of Supervisors has voted to hire an independent monitor to oversee reforms in L.A. Jails.

The Supervisors say they've lost faith in Sheriff Lee Baca's ability to clean up the system. A citizen's commission recently rebuked Baca for his failure to prevent violence behind bars.

KPCC's Frank Stoltze was at yesterday's meeting and he joins us now.
