L.A. County probation chief under pressure to leave, sources say

Los Angeles County probation chief Donald Blevins is under pressure to leave his job, according to county sources.

Supervisors began discussing Blevins' departure and a potential severance package during a closed session last week and again Tuesday behind closed doors. No vote was taken.

Blevins, who is on vacation this week, could not be reached for comment.

Kerri Webb, a spokeswoman for the Probation Department, said the vacation had been planned months in advance and that the department had not been notified of Blevin's departure.

"We expect him back in the office on Monday," Webb said.
