Ballot Initiative Could Roll Back Recent Criminal Justice Initiatives

Tough-on-crime law enforcement and crime victims’ organizations have introduced a ballot initiative to roll back changes made to criminal justice laws by recent measures to lower the prison population in California’s over-crowded prisons. They want to expand the list of violent crimes that would be ineligible for early release under Prop 57 and to increase DNA testing and other changes to Proposition 47.
