Proposition 47 passed with 59.3 percent of the vote. Within days of the election, law enforcement changed how they charge and prosecute some crimes. On Nov. 12 we spoke with longtime District Attorney Jan Scully and DA-elect Anne Marie Schubert about the prosecutor’s perspective on Prop. 47. Today we’ll hear from criminal defense experts about what they think.

Ignacio Hernandez is a lobbyist for the criminal defense bar in California. Lenore Anderson chaired the initiative ballot committee. They can tell us how Prop. 47 is working out so far and what implementation will look like over the coming months and years.
