REFORM ALLIANCE SCORES BIG WIN
... Improving State's Probation System
the criminal justice reform org launched by Jay-Z, Meek Mill, Michael Rubin, and others -- is celebrating its first major victory with CA Gov. Gavin Newsom signing a new bill into law.
Newsom just put pen to paper on AB 1950 ... legislation which will drastically reshape Cali's probation system and give hundreds of thousands of Californians a better shot at exiting the criminal justice system for good.
Specifically, the new law limits adult probation sentences to a maximum of 1 year for a misdemeanor, and 2 years for felony offenses. The theory is that will greatly reduce probation violations. REFORM campaigned hard for the bill, generating more than 3,000 emails to Newsom's desk.
