	BILL TEXT


INTRODUCED BY   Assembly Member Huber

                        DECEMBER 13, 2010

   An act to add Section 1203.077 to the Penal Code, relating to
sentencing.



	LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


   AB 67, as introduced, Huber. Sentencing: methamphetamine.
   Existing law provides that any person convicted of the unlawful
sale of cocaine or heroin who is eligible for and granted probation
shall, as a condition of that probation, be confined in a county jail
for at least 180 days, except as provided.
   This bill would also provide that any person convicted of selling
methamphetamine who is granted probation shall be confined in a
county jail for at least 180 days as a condition of probation, except
as provided. By requiring confinement in a county jail as a
condition of probation, this bill would impose a state-mandated local
program.
   The California Constitution requires the state to reimburse local
agencies and school districts for certain costs mandated by the
state. Statutory provisions establish procedures for making that
reimbursement.
   This bill would provide that no reimbursement is required by this
act for a specified reason.
   Vote: majority. Appropriation: no. Fiscal committee: yes.
State-mandated local program: yes.


THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  SECTION 1.  Section 1203.077 is added to the Penal Code, to read:
   1203.077.  Any person convicted of violating Section 11379 of the
Health and Safety Code, relating to the sale of methamphetamine, who
is eligible for and granted probation shall be confined in a county
jail for at least 180 days as a condition of probation. That minimum
sentence shall be imposed in every case unless the court finds that
it is in the interest of justice not to impose that sentence, and
states on the record the circumstances indicating why justice would
be served by not imposing that minimum jail sentence.
  SEC. 2.  No reimbursement is required by this act pursuant to
Section 6 of Article XIII B of the California Constitution because
the only costs that may be incurred by a local agency or school
district will be incurred because this act creates a new crime or
infraction, eliminates a crime or infraction, or changes the penalty
for a crime or infraction, within the meaning of Section 17556 of the
Government Code, or changes the definition of a crime within the
meaning of Section 6 of Article XIII B of the California
Constitution.
