Orange County Reduced Sentence Attorney

Orange County reduced sentence attorneyBy a considerable margin, California voters in 2014 passed a measure that reclassifies a number of low-level, non-violent crimes. Voters made it possible for thousands of non-violent offenders to be resentenced and possibly released from the state’s overcrowded prison system. Under Proposition 47, low-level property and drug felonies such as shoplifting, theft, and check fraud under $950, as well as personal illicit drug use, are reclassified as misdemeanors. Because the law is applied retroactively, as many as 10,000 inmates convicted of these offenses became eligible for early release. While the proposition is helpful to some who’ve been already been convicted of a crime, if you’re accused of a DUI, a drug or sex crime, a robbery or theft, or if you expect to be charged with a crime in Orange County, arrange to speak immediately with experienced Orange County reduced sentence attorney Simon Budhwani, Esq.
