The recent passage of Proposition 47is already benefitting those in the prison system by classifying some drug and property crimes as misdemeanors instead of felonies. As a result, jails are able to release more inmates. However, Proposition 47 does not apply in all cases and some will be left behind and forced to serve their sentences.
For the prisoner who has been released, there’s the immediate matter of getting back on their feet. They can start by discussing their options with a criminal record expungement attorney from Sacramento like Michael Chastaine, attorney-at-law.
