Customer Question

Do you have any information on when proposition 57 will be effective?
JA: What state are you in? It matters because laws vary by location.
Customer: California
JA: Has anything been filed or reported?
Customer: My son is currently serving time - his charges would be dropped to misdemeanors when prop 57 takes effect and therefore would be eligible for early release - just not sure when the proposition becomes effective.
JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: Is there anything we should be doing in order to help with obtaining that early release?

Thank you for your question.

Prop 57 came into force at midnight the day after the election.

As a start, you might want to send a letter to the agency holding your son to ask how it intends to implement Prop 57 in his case.

You can get a free consultation from some of the criminal defense attorneys listed by location here.

I hope this information is helpful.
