What is Proposition 47?

A person who had completed his or her sentence for a conviction, whether by trial or plea, of a felony or felonies, who would have been guilty of a misdemeanor under this act had this act been in effect at the time of the offense, may file an application before the trial court that entered the judgment of conviction in his or her case to have the felony conviction or convictions designated as misdemeanors.

This applies if a person has previous been convicted of the following Sections: 11350, 11376,  or 11377 of the Health and Safety Code, or Section 459.5, 473, 476a, 490.2, 496, or 666 of the Penal Code.

The provisions of this section shall not apply to persons who have one or more prior convictions for an offense specified in clause or for an offense requiring registration pursuant to subdivision (c) of Section 290.

Any petition or application under this section shall be filed within three years after the effective date of the act that added this section or at a later date upon showing of good cause.

Any felony conviction that is recalled and resentenced under subdivision (b) or designated as a misdemeanor under subdivision (g) shall be considered a misdemeanor for all purposes, except that such resentencing shall not permit that person to own, possess, or have in his or her custody or control any firearm or prevent his or her conviction under Chapter 2 (commencing with Section 29800) of Division 9 of Title 4 of Part 6.
