The November 2020 ballot measure in California that would significantly increase the number of violent felonies (from 27 to 51) resulting in harsher sentencing has a number: Proposition 20. Of that total, the number of sex offenses would increase from 9 to 14.
“We urge registrants, family members, friends and supporters to vote NO on Proposition 20,” stated ACSOL Executive Director Janice Bellucci. “This is the time to show up, stand up and speak up against the possibility of future injustice.”
The ballot measure would also allow law enforcement to collect DNA from some individuals convicted of a misdemeanor. The ACLU opposes this ballot measure. Law enforcement organizations support this ballot measure.
