Rape of the unconscious, human trafficking involving sex acts with minors, domestic violence involving trauma, failing to register as a sex offender, lewd acts against a child are "nonviolent felonies"?
Proposition 57 or the Public Safety and Rehabilitation Act, another misleading name like Proposition 47, considers the preceding crimes "nonviolent felonies."
From the Association of Deputy District Attorneys, Los Angeles County:
"Offenders who commit multiple crimes against multiple victims will be eligible for release at the same time as offenders who only committed a single crime against a single victim. Repeat offenders will be eligible for release after the same period of incarceration as first time offenders. Offenders whose sentence was enhanced for especially egregious conduct will be eligible for release at the same time as those who did not engage in the egregious conduct. ... Juvenile offenders who commit violent crimes like murder, rape and carjacking cannot be filed on as adults. They must be filed on in juvenile court."
We have all seen the revolving door of repeat offenders in Humboldt County; Proposition 47's effect by reclassifying certain crimes as misdemeanors. This is what Gov. Jerry Brown and Kamala Harris want to unleash on citizens. The outcry so far has come from deputy DAs, sheriffs, law enforcement and Republican groups.
Who has been silent? Women's groups and Democrats.
