Resentencing & Crime Reclassification in Riverside

Proposition 47, recently passed by California voters, allows for the reclassification of certain felony crimes down to misdemeanors. It also sets forth new sentencing guidelines and provides for resentencing if you or a loved one has been convicted of specific non-violent felonies – even if sentenced under California’s Three Strikes law.

The State of California has been struggling with the issue of overcrowded prisons for decades. Prop 47 was drafted in response to this overcrowding, and its primary goal is to reduce the prison populace while maintaining public safety.

Under this new law, the following non-violent crimes may be reduced from felonies to misdemeanors:

Individuals who have been successfully prosecuted for the commission of some violent crimes or sex offenses will not be eligible for the sentencing reductions that coincide with the reduced criminal classification from felony to misdemeanor.

In addition to the reclassification of these crimes, Prop. 47 requires resentencing for those presently serving time in prison for the conviction of the preceding, unless doing so would pose an unreasonable risk of harm to the general public. Under the new law, the maximum time for incarceration will be reduced to either one year, or in some cases reduced to six months!
