Prop 47 Will Have A Tremendous Impact on Many Santa Barbara County Drug Cases
In November of 2014, California Voters passes a law (Prop 47) which re-classifies the following Health and Safety Code Violations from Felonies to Misdemeanors: HS 11350, HS 11357, and HS 11377. If you are being charged with one of these charges, please contact us for a Proposition 47 case evaluation. Further, if you have been convicted in the past of one of these charges, we can petition the court to have the charge retroactively reduced to a misdemeanor and even get you re-sentenced by the court if you are currently serving a felony sentence.
