Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
I'm Lucy, and I'd be happy to answer your questions today.
If Prop 57 passes, approximately 7,000 inmates in jail for non-violent offenses will be immediately eligible for parole. Anyone who has served their base sentence and passed public screening will become eligible. The law will also allow approximately 18,000 more inmates to seek early release for non-violent offenses, once they have served their base sentences. The base sentence does not include enhancements.
