Report: California Has More “Three-Strikes” Felons

Sponsored by:

A report finds California imprisons more felons under its three-strikes law than almost every otherthree-strikes state combined.

The report´s authors and other three-strikes opponents cite the data as evidence that California´s toughest-in-the-nation law is draconian and must be reformed.

But supporters of the status quo say the report only proves that California´s tough law is working by putting large numbers of criminals behind bars.

Proposition 66 on the November ballot would amend the law to require the third strike offense to be a serious or violent felony.

Presently any felony can constitute a third strike.
