Gov. Jerry Brown and the four legislative leaders have announced  a deal on relieving the state’s prison population, agreeing to ask a panel of federal judges to extend the end-of-the-year deadline on releasing thousands of inmates.
    
The deal hinges on the state’s ability to persuade three federal judges to give California time to let rehabilitation programs work rather than spending $315 million to lease cells in private prisons and available county jails.
