Governor Lowers Mandatory Sentence for Drug Use

Governor Lowers Mandatory Sentence for Drug Use (HS 11550)
 
Starting January 1, 2015, the mandatory ninety day sentence for drug users will be eliminated. Previously, a person charged with being under the influence of a controlled substance, Health and Safety Code Section 11550, who did not otherwise qualify for a diversionary program, would face a minimum of ninety days as a sentence. On the other hand, the new law provides that if a person has suffered two prior Health and Safety Code Section 11550 convictions in the previous seven years, that person faces a 180 day minimum unless that person enters and completes a drug rehabilitation program.
