Nixing prison time for certain crimes among proposed changes to California Penal Code


March 2, 2021

by Antonio Ray Harvey, California Black Media

California’s Committee on Revision of the Penal Code (CRPC) released its first annual report last week. The proposal included 10 recommendations that would significantly reform California’s criminal justice system – if they are adopted into law.

Sen. Steven Bradford, D-Gardena, the chair of the Senate Committee on Public Safety, praised CRPC’s inaugural recommendations that, he says, “represent broad consensus among a wide array” of stakeholders, including law enforcement, crime victims, civil rights leaders and individuals directly impacted by the legal system.

“I commend the members of the Committee on Revision of the Penal Code for their diligent work in examining our state’s criminal laws and justice system,” said Bradford, who is also the chair of the California Legislative Black Caucus (CLBC).

“In the past year, Californians have rallied for systemic criminal justice reform and have repeatedly rejected tough-on-crime measures at the ballot box. As chair of the Senate Committee on Public Safety, I look forward to working with my colleagues and stakeholders on these recommendations.”
