Proposition 47 didn't receive very much media attention before the ballot. Now that it has passed, though, some pretty major changes are coming to California in the way in which crimes are classified. To be exact, many common, yet non-violent offenses that were previously classified as "felonies" are now being downgraded to "misdemeanors" (with reduced sentences) in an effort to quickly release non-violent offenders from custody.
Under Proposition 47, the crimes of theft, shoplifting, forgery and several drug possession offenses would be reduced from felonies to misdemeanors, which means that the sentencing requirements for these crimes would likely not result in any jail time at the state level. Apart from new cases, those who are already serving sentences for felony-level convictions of these crimes would be eligible for re-sentencing and possible release.
