Using Prop 47 To Reduce Your Non-Violent Felony Conviction
At The Mattern Law Firm, we never stop striving to provide relief to individuals who have gotten tangled up in the California justice system. Even if your case is over and you have no chance for appeal, we may still be able to offer you some relief in our capacity as a Prop 47 attorney.
What is Prop 47?
Prop 47 is a sentencing relief measure that takes felony penalties off the table for non-violent offenders who commit certain low-level crimes such as:
- Drug Possession
- Passing Bad Checks
- Credit Card Fraud
- Receiving Stolen Property
Prop 47 Doesn’t Just Apply To New Crimes
Prop 47 can be applied retroactively to past convictions. This presents a tremendous benefit to individuals who are currently incarcerated on a qualifying felony. If you have a loved one who is currently serving a sentence, make sure they reach out to a Prop 47 lawyer in Los Angeles CA right away for help filing a resentencing petition that could very well bring them home sooner.
Should I Care About Prop 47 If I’ve Already Completed My Sentence?
YES! Just because you’re no longer in jail does not mean you can’t benefit from Prop 47. You can still file a resentencing petition with help from a Prop 47 attorney. If successful, your felony conviction will be replaced by a misdemeanor on your permanent record. This will not restore lost gun rights, but the removal of a felony from your record can still provide important benefits for your reputation going forward.
