Prop 47 Resentencing
The law has recently changed. Under Penal Code Section 1170.18, a person currently serving a sentence, or who has completed a sentence, for a conviction of a felony violation of section 11350, 11357 or 11377 of the Health and Safety Code or section 459.5, 473, 476a, 490.2, 496 or 666 of the Penal Code may be eligible to have the felony conviction designated as a misdemeanor and/or re-sentenced as a misdemeanor.

In many cases a petition can be filed to re-sentence you or to reclassify/reduce the offense as a misdemeanor. Should you have one of the above felony convictions, you need to be aware that the process is not automatic. A Petition has to be filed in the court where you were sentenced.

She will advise you on your eligibility for a reduction and/or re-sentencing on your felony conviction; she will also be able to advise you on other procedures that could lead to the clearing of your criminal record.
