Prop. 47 seeks to turn many felonies into misdemeanors

Being convicted of a felony has life-changing consequences. Felonies are considered the most serious class of crimes and are generally punishable by over a year in prison and/or a large fine. Felonies are more serious than misdemeanor crimes by nature and often involve acts of violence.  

What is the three strikes law?

California's Three Strikes policy was adopted in the mid-1990s and has caused plenty of controversy since that time for being unreasonably harsh. The original version of the law doubled the normal sentence for a felony if it was the defendant’s second felony. The law also imposed a 25-years to life sentence if the person received a third conviction, or “strike,” no matter what that conviction was for.
