SB 775 Felony Murder Resentencing

In 2021, SB 775 made some additional changes to Penal Code section 1170.95. As a result, starting January 1, 2022, people who were accomplices convicted of aiding and abetting attempted murder and accomplices who were charged with murder but convicted of manslaughter can petition the court to have their convictions vacated and to be resentenced on a less serious felony.
