Have you languished over a conviction over a medication/drugs or a robbery charge that falls inside the purview of Proposition 47?
As of November 5, 2014, California law has changed and (1) most medication ownership for individual utilization offenses and (2) burglary offenses with a loss of short of what $950 are presently considered wrongdoings.
Whether you are on post trial supervision, compulsory supervision, PCS or parole, have a pending case, or your case was at one time shut and you are no more under any manifestation of supervision or custodial responsibility, this is a paramount change in the law that can permit you to essentially change your criminal record. Pending cases are now being affected and former feelings can be requested of to the court to be decreased.
On the off chance that you have a conviction on your record that falls under Proposition 47, you are qualified much of the time to have the charge lessened to a wrongdoing. On the off chance that it is a “shut case” and you have finished the sentence and are not on post trial supervision, required supervision, parole, and so forth, you are qualified for a decrease.
On the off chance that you are still on supervision of any sort, a judge must figure out if lessening the offense to a wrongdoing by re-sentencing would represent an “outlandish danger of threat to open well being” in your specific case, which implies a “nonsensical hazard that the applicant will confer another brutal crime under [pc 667, subd. (e)(2)(c)(iv)]”
Under Penal Code §1170.18, an individual presently serving a sentence, or has finished a sentence, for a conviction of a lawful offense infringement of area 11350, 11357 or 11377 of the Health and Safety Code or segments 459.5, 473, 476a, 490.2, 496 or 666 of the Penal Code may be qualified to have the crime conviction assigned as a wrongdoing and/or re-sentenced as a misdeed. The conviction will be viewed as an offense for all reasons aside from having guns.
