Reform California Chairman Carl DeMaio and four leaders of crime victim advocacy groups held a press conference today to urge voters to vote YES on Prop 20.

Prop 20 will reduce crime and keep our neighborhoods safe by restoring the felony status to a variety of crimes that California politicians have downgraded to mere misdemeanors. Prop 20 would also give victims reasonable notice when an inmate is going to be released, and allow them to privately submit statements to the Board of Parole Hearings before they are released. Finally Prop 20 would also reverse dangerous “early release” policies that allow violent criminals to cut their prison sentences short.
