ORDER ADOPTING FINDINGS, CONCLUSIONS, AND RECOMMENDATIONS OF UNITED STATES MAGISTRATE JUDGE
Pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 636, the Court has reviewed the Petition, all the records and files herein, and the Report and Recommendation of the United States Magistrate Judge, de novo. The Court concurs with and adopts the findings, conclusions, and recommendations of the Magistrate Judge.
IT IS ORDERED that Judgment be entered: (1) approving and adopting this Report and Recommendation; and (2) directing that Judgment be entered granting a writ of habeas corpus as follows: The Board shall find Petitioner suitable for parole at a hearing to be held within 30 days of the finality of this decision, unless new, relevant and reliable evidence of her conduct in prison or change in mental status subsequent to the September 11, 2006, parole consideration hearing is introduced that is sufficient to support a finding that Petitioner currently poses an unreasonable risk of danger to society if released on parole; and in the absence of any such new relevant and reliable evidence showing Petitioner's unsuitability for parole, the Board shall calculate a prison term and release date for Petitioner in accordance with California law. Further, if the release date already has lapsed, Respondent shall, within ten days of the Board's hearing, either release Petitioner forthwith if his release date lapsed more than three years earlier, or release Petitioner on parole for that period of her three year parole term that remains if the release date lapsed less than three years earlier.
