Proposition 47 Reduces Drug and Theft Crimes to Misdemeanors

 

Proposition 47 Reduces Drug and Theft Crimes to Misdemeanors
 
In a sweeping change to the judicial system, Proposition 47 dramatically altered the landscape of felony sentencing. In general, all simple drug possession offenses (Health and Safety Code Sections 11377 and 11350) were reduced to misdemeanors. Additionally, all theft offenses where the value of the property taken is under $950 are now misdemeanors. Previously, these offenses were felonies carrying a maximum sentence of three years in jail.  This new sentencing scheme does not apply to those individuals who are sexual offenders or persons with particular prior offenses which are deemed serious or violent by the penal code.
