PEOPLE ARE BEING SENTENCED TODAY DIFFERENTLY THAN THEY WERE 10 YEARS AGO   

     With the advent of Realignment AB 109, and Prop 47 The Save Neighborhood and Schools Act, people are being punished much differently than they were ten years ago.  Especially in regards to non violent crimes, which included possession of control substances.  However, AB 109 did not change how serious crimes, violent crimes or sex crimes are punished. 

        It started in 2011, AB 109 transferred responsibility of certain inmates from state prison to county jail.  So for example if you were punished and given a sentence of 2 years in state prison, AB 109 now requires that you be housed in county jail.  This can be very beneficial to someone doing time and to their family.  Often times, this makes it easier for the family to interact with the person doing time in county jail.  Where if the person was in prison, the family would have to drive long hours and go through the bureaucracy of prison entry. 

      Proposition 47 implemented chang on how a person was sentenced.  One of the main things it did was reclassify certain felonies as misdemeanors, but it does not allow possession or custody and control of a firearm.   These two changes are very important, at The Firm we understand the law, which shall give you great representation.
