Get help with Prop 57 early parole petitions
As a result of Proposition 57, many non-violent offenders are now eligible for early parole after completing the sentence associated with the primary offense for which they were convicted.
Prop 57 is having the biggest impact on individuals who were given sentencing enhancements on top of the sentence for their primary offense. For example, say an individual with priors was convicted of selling drugs. They might get a 4-year sentence for possession for sale of narcotics, plus a 2-year sentencing enhancement for having already served two prison terms on previous drug charges. Under Prop 57, they could be considered for early release after serving the 4-year sentence for the drug charge, since it was the primary offense. This would save them two years in prison.
Prop 57 does not apply to convictions for violent felonies such as murder, rape, robbery, kidnapping, carjacking, and other crimes described in California Penal Code section 667.5(c).
