California has passed Proposition 47. This is great news for anyone with a non-serious and nonviolent crime such as; Drug Possession, Grand theft (amount stolen must be under $950.00), Shoplifting (amount stolen must be under $950.00), Receiving Stolen Property, Writing Bad Checks, and Check Forgery.
Proposition 47 allows these crimes to be lowered from felonies to a misdemeanor, and eventually allowing it to be expunged.
If you have been previously convicted of one of these crimes, you may be able to have your sentence reduced. Call us today, to see if Proposition 47 can help you!
