Help us get people back to court for resentencing and get people free! Come learn about CDCR’s re-sentencing process, and prepare comments and live testimony. We have 45 days to make public comments and testify at CDCR’s hearing.

Since June 2018, CDCR’s PC § 1170(d)(1) Resentencing “pilot program” formally tracked and reviewed over 1,800 cases and referred roughly 1300 people back to court for resentencing. So far CDCR prioritized referring people with illegal or no longer mandatory enhancements, with sentencing errors, and for exceptional conduct. Now, effective January 1, 2020, CDCR has updated its Title 15 regulations that govern the process and criteria CDCR staff use for making PC § 1170(d)(1) resentencing referrals. As we’ve seen with Proposition 57 parole board hearings, exclusionary criteria are now being applied that keep people incarcerated who should have a chance to come home. And the unclear referral process is contributing to confusion, unfairness, and missed opportunities for freedom.

Join us to prevent more people being left behind by broad exclusions.
