Proposition 57 rolls back years of progress made in fighting crime and protecting victims in California.Prop. 57 allows violent, dangerous and adult career criminals to be released from prison early, including those convicted of:
- Rape by intoxication
- Rape of an unconscious person
- Human trafficking involving sex act with minors
- Drive-by shooting
- Assault with a deadly weapon
- Taking a hostage
- Domestic violence involving trauma
- Supplying a firearm to a gang member
- Lewd acts upon a child
- Hate crime causing physical injury
- Failing to register as a sex offender
- Arson causing great bodily injury
- Felon obtaining a firearm
- Discharging a firearm on school grounds

* Partial list
Here are five more reasons to VOTE NO on 57:
- 57 authorizesstate government bureaucrats to reduce many sentences for “good behavior,” even for inmates convicted of murder, rape, child molestation and human trafficking.
- 57 permits the worst career criminals to be treated the same as first-time offenders, discounting strong sentences imposed by a judge.
- “57 effectively overturns key provisions of Marsy’s Law, “3-Strikes and You’re Out,” Victims’ Bill of Rights, Californians Against Sexual Exploitation Act,– measures enacted by voters that have protected victims and made communities safer.” Susan Fisher, Former Chairwoman State Parole Board.
- 57 forces victims trying to put their lives back together to re-live the crimes committed against them over and over again, with every new parole hearing.
- 57 will likely result in higher crime rates as at least 16,000 dangerous criminals, including those previously convicted of murder and rape, would be eligible for early release.
Make no mistake. If Prop. 57 passes, every home, every neighborhood, every school will be less safe than it is today. Violent crime was up 10% last year in California. Don’t allow more violent and dangerous criminals to be released early. VOTE NO on 57!
