LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST
AB 67, as introduced, Rodriguez. Violent and nonviolent felonies.
Existing law, as amended by Proposition 21 as approved by the voters at the March 7, 2000, statewide primary election and by Proposition 83 at the November 7, 2006, statewide general election, classifies certain felonies as violent felonies for purposes of various sentencing schemes. Existing law imposes an additional one-year term for a felony and a 3-year term for a violent felony for each prior separate prison term served for a violent felony. Existing law, as added by Proposition 184, adopted November 8, 1994, and amended by Proposition 36, adopted November 6, 2012, commonly known as the Three Strikes Law, also imposes additional years of imprisonment in state prison on a person who commits a violent felony and has been convicted of, or who has a prior conviction for, a violent felony. The Legislature may amend the above-specified initiative statutes by a statute passed in each house by a 2/3 vote.
This bill would state the intent of the Legislature to enact legislation to define human trafficking, domestic violence involving strangulation, and rape of an unconscious person as violent felonies.
