Today on Your Call: Is it time to reform California’s Three Strikes Law?


On today's Your Call, we’ll continue our election coverage with a debate on Proposition 36. If it passes, it would change key elements of California’s Three Strikes Sentencing Law, enacted in 1994.  With Prop 36, a life sentence would only be imposed if the final felony conviction is serious or violent.  What’s your opinion of California’s Three Strikes Law?  Join us at 10am PST or leave a comment here. What do you want to know about Prop 36?  It’s Your Call with Holly Kernan, and you.
