Exclamation Vote YES on CA Prop. 47: Reduced Penalties for Some Crimes

(Sorry if this is the wrong place for this)

California voters, you can get more info on ballotpedia, etc., but here's the summary:

"Ballot title:
Criminal Sentences. Misdemeanor Penalties. Initiative Statute.

Official summary:
The long-form summary reads:

  • Requires misdemeanor sentence instead of felony for the following crimes when amount involved is $950 or less: petty theft, receiving stolen property, and forging/writing bad checks.
  • Requires misdemeanor sentence instead of felony for certain drug possession offenses.
  • Allows felony sentence for these offenses if person has previous conviction for crimes such as rape, murder, or child molestation or is registered sex offender.
  • Requires resentencing for persons serving felony sentences for these offenses unless court finds unreasonable public safety risk.
  • Applies savings to mental health and drug treatment programs, K–12 schools, and crime victims.
