California Proposition 47 Petition for Resentencing Kit

As of November 2014 in California, many felony drug possession and low-level theft offenses have been reclassified as misdemeanors. Eligible defendants who are still serving their sentences can petition the court for resentencing as a misdemeanant, often resulting in significantly reduced sentences. Nolo’s California Proposition 47 Petition for Resentencing Kit includes all you need:

  • Petition for Resentencing (Penal Code Section 1170.18(a)). You initiate the resentencing process with this document.
  • Proof of Service, Petition for Resentencing. This form proves that you served a copy of your petition on the district attorney.
  • District Attorney’s Response to Petition for Resentencing (Penal Code Section 1170.18). The district attorney responds to your request by agreeing with you or objecting.
  • Order on Petition for Resentencing (Penal Code Sec. 1170.18(b)). The judge will use this form to record his or her decision.

If you have completed your sentence, use Nolo’s California Proposition 47 Application for Reclassification Kit

See below for more product details.

Resentencing under California's Proposition 47 cannot result in a harsher sentence. To the contrary, most defendants in state prison will be released (subject to the possibility of a year’s parole) or given one of many probation options; and people with felony convictions who are still on parole will be able to rid themselves of a felony conviction  But to take advantage of Prop 47 relief, the defendant needs to take action.

The four forms in Nolo’s California Proposition 47 Petition for Resentencing Kit enables defendants who qualify for resentencing to bring their cases back to court for resentencing as misdemeanants. Every step of the way, Nolo explains how to fill in the forms, where to find the needed information, and how to get it. Even if your county provides forms with countywide information, you won’t find comprehensive, easy to understand instructions and explanations like those in the Nolo kit.

Nolo’s California Proposition 47 Petition for Resentencing Kit contains the following forms:

  • Petition for Resentencing (Penal Code Section 1170.18(a)). You initiate the resentencing process with this document.
