60 Seconds: Prop. 36

60 Seconds - Prop. 36

Proposition 36, a statewide measure on the ballot in the November election, proposes changes to California’s three-strikes law.

If it passes, it would revise the law to impose a life sentence only when new felony convictions are serious or violent. It would authorize re-sentencing for offenders currently serving life sentences if their third-strike conviction was a nonviolent crime, and if they were deemed by a judge to not be a risk to public safety.

Mission Local asks Mission residents: “Do you think people who were sentenced to life under the three-strikes law should be re-sentenced if they were convicted of nonviolent crimes?”
