Proposition 47, also known as the Safe Neighborhoods and Schools Act, was passed in 2014 and reclassified certain nonviolent offenses from felonies to misdemeanors. The goal of Proposition 47 was to reduce the number of people incarcerated for nonviolent offenses and redirect resources to education and crime prevention programs.
Some of the offenses that were reclassified under Proposition 47 include theft, forgery, drug possession, and shoplifting. However, there are specific criteria that must be met for an offense to be reclassified. For example, the value of stolen property in a theft offense must be less than $950.
