Santa Barbara Deputy District Attorney Association Urges a No Vote on Prop. 57

Prop. 57 claims to only apply to non-violent offenders, however, the plain language of proposition tells another story.  Instead, Prop. 57 amends the California Constitution to allow the state prison bureaucracy to undercut lengthy sentences of career violent offenders without any court or voter oversight.  After 5 straight years of shortening prison sentences and decriminalizing theft and drug dealing, violent crime rates began to rise in 2015.  Now is not the time to reduce the sentences of career, violent offenders.  Our communities deserve better.
