Voters in November 2016 approved Gov. Jerry Brown's proposal for changing the “determinate” sentencing law, which he signed in his first term in 1976. Saying prisoners have too few incentives to turn their lives around, he proposed to make it easier for nonviolent offenders to obtain parole. He spoke on Monday, April 11, 2016 at a conference in Sacramento coinciding with National Crime Victims’ Rights Week. Christopher Cadelago The Sacramento Bee
