Prop 47 Resentencing

Orange County Criminal Defense Attorney

Recently, the voters of California passed a ballot initiative called Proposition 47. The goal of Proposition 47 is to reduce the severe overcrowding of our state's prisons. In order to do this, Prop 47 changes some minor, non-violent criminal offenses from felonies to misdemeanors, which affects the sentences for these offenses.

The maximum adjusted sentence for a nonviolent crime is now only one year. Additionally, this new law applies retroactively, so people who are currently serving a prison sentence relating to a crime affected by Prop 47 can petition for a new sentence. This may affect thousands of people currently in California jail, including you.

What Types of Offenses Does Prop 47 Reclassify?

Prop 47 resentencing only pertains to non-violent offenses, and anyone with a criminal record of violent crimes will not qualify. State officials will be conducting a thorough examination of everyone who applies for resentencing to make sure there is nothing in their record that indicates they are a threat to others.

The types of offenses reclassified under prop 47 include:

There are also other types of non-violent crimes that qualify, so make sure you reach out to our firm to learn more about whether you qualify or not.
