New 2021 California Probation Limits
Assembly Bill (AB) 1950
California Governor Gavin Newsome signed AB 1950 into law about new probation limits for 2021. Misdemeanor probation limit is 1 year. Felony Probation 2 years. This was widely support by all branches of government. There are 250,000 people on probation in California now. More than the total number in prisons and jails. This is incredibly costly. And for juveniles can mean a revolving door into the prison system (recidivism).
