Costa Mesa Prop 47 Lawyer Garo Madenlian

Recently passed by voters in the state of California, Proposition 47 provides for the reclassification of specific non-violent felonies to misdemeanors, and restructures the sentencing guidelines. Even if you or a loved one has been sentenced according to the Three Strikes Law, provisions within this new law allow for a reduction in sentencing.

Drafted and passed in an effort to address California’s problems with prison overpopulation, Proposition 47 has two main goals: to reduce overcrowding in the state’s prisons while providing for the safety of the general public.

Costa Mesa Criminal Defense Attorney Garo Madenlian has been working extensively with both his clients and the courts as they work diligently to implement Prop 47, both in securing the release of inmates from jails and prisons, as well as restructuring the sentences imposed and the reduction of specific non-violent felonies to misdemeanors.

Proposition 47 provides for the reduction of the following qualifying non-violent crimes to misdemeanors wherein the value of goods is $950 or less, including but not limited to the following:

  • Check Kiting
  • Crimes against Property such as Vandalism, Theft, etc.
  • Forgery
  • Petty Theft
  • Possession of Drugs
  • Receipt of Stolen Property
  • Shoplifting
  • Writing Bad Checks

Those convicted of committing a sex crime or violent crimes are not eligible for either a reduction to a misdemeanor offense or in sentencing.
