This is a major milestone in California legal history. It is an acknowledgment by the majority of our citizens that non-violent durg offenders need help, not incarceration. Thank you, California voters for keeping the faith and not allowing yourselves to be scared into submission by some very large unions and lobbyists.
For those of you with pending (or even past) criminal cases, please consult an attorney. It is more important than ever to know ALL your options and flying blind in court is no way to go.
