Default Anyone know anything about Ab2942 that goes into effect in January, 2019?

Does anyone know any information about ab2942 I can not find anything about it. I know it goes into effect in January. It gives distinct Attorney’s office to request resentencing.

Thank you so much for this. Would they have to send the letter to the district attorney that was in charge of the case? Who does the letter go to?

Is this saying they have to been giving 15 years or more? Could someone who was giving 14 years and half way through the sentence apply?

Existing law and this bill explicitly state sentence has to be 15 years or more. This bill adds words to existing law allowing incarcerated to write to DA to request resentencing. How to convince DA to do that are questions for an attorney.
