I was arrested for bringing drugs into jail. I later was rearrested for possession of narcotic. Does prop 47 effect these from felonies to misdemeanors... I plead no contest to both and was given probation for 3 years.
No. Unfortunately, prop 47 does not apply to this offense.
Any information provided through Avvo.com in response to a question is not, and cannot be considered a formation of any Attorney-Client relationship. Questioner understands that the nature of this system allows only for a cursory review of case information, and more detailed information should not be divulged in this public forum. As such, Questioner is recommended to contact an Attorney in order to discuss the full details of their case and a more specific advisement of potential rights and liabilities.
Unfortunately, PC 4573 is not covered by Prop 47.
The response above is not intended as legal advice since it’s impracticable to provide thorough, accurate advice based upon the query without additional details. It is highly recommended that one should seek advice from a criminal defense attorney licensed in your jurisdiction by setting up a confidential meeting. Moreover, this response does not constitute the creation of an attorney-client relationship since this message is not a confidential communication because it was posted on a public website, thereby publicly disclosing the information, which is another reason to setup a confidential meeting with an attorney.
There have been a ton questions abiut Prop 47 and 4573. Either they are duplicate questions or there are a whole slew of people convicted of that charge.
No, Prop 47 does not affect 4573.
The above answer is for general information only and is based on the information you posted. Every case is fact dependent, so to get a thorough analysis of your situation, you will need to consult face to face with an attorney licensed to practice in the jurisdiction where the incident took place. Do not conclusively rely on any information posted online when deciding what to do about your case.
No, Prop 47 does not affect PC4573. This question has been coming a lot lately...
