Marijuana Conviction Relief
Proposition 64, adopted by California voters on November 8, 2016, allows persons convicted of certain marijuana crimes to petition the court to have their convictions reduced to a misdemeanor or dismissed (view or download PC § 11361.8 document).
Sacramento County uses a one page form (view or download CR-335 petition document) for individuals or their attorneys to file in court and serve a copy on the District Attorney’s office. The process is simple, fast and effective.
