How will Prop 57 help my inmate get released early?
It depends on his charges - the length of the sentence seems pretty short and we doubt it will give him any relief because of it. Prop 57 changes the State Constitution sentencing and court procedures for two kinds of situations. Adults convicted of non-violent felonies would be eligible for parole after serving time for their main crimes. Inmates may also have more opportunities to reduce their sentences through credits for good behavior and approved educational activities.
