Sentencing Reform: Firearm Enhancements Can be Stricken & 3-Year Drug Enhancments Greatly Limited
Oct. 13, 2017

As part of a historic criminal justice reform package, the governor has signed two important laws, curtailing firearm use and drug enhancements: (1) Senate Bill 620, eliminates the statutory prohibition on striking a firearm enhancement; and (2) Senate Bill 180, all but eliminates three-year drug enhancements under Health and Safety Code section 11370.2, limiting that enhancement to priors for use of a minor in a drug offense.

A memo describing the changes and providing a sample argument for pending and non-final appeals was emailed to the FDAP panel on Oct. 13, 2017.
