The REFORM Alliance, which was co-founded by Patriots owner Robert Kraft, Jay-Z, Meek Mill, and others, secured what it’s calling its first major legislative win.
California Governor Gavin Newsom signed Assembly Bill 1950 into law Wednesday night, a measure meant to limit probation for adults in California.
Under AB 1950, probation for adults who commit misdemeanor offenses will be a maximum of one year. For felony offenses, adults will have no more than two years of probation.
Prior to AB 1950, the maximum probation term for those who commit misdemeanor offenses was three years. For felony offenses, probation terms could last for as long as the maximum possible prison sentence for the offense.
