CA AB 2470

Title: Violent felonies: domestic violence.
Author: Greg Wallis

AB 2470, as amended, Joe Patterson. Violent felonies: domestic violence. Existing law defines the term “violent felony” for various purposes, including, among others, enhancing the punishment for felonies pursuant to existing sentencing provisions commonly known as the three strikes law. The Legislature may directly amend the three strikes law by a statute passed in each house by a 2/3 vote, or by a statute that becomes effective only when approved by the voters.This bill would expand the crimes that are within the definition of a violent felony for all purposes, including for purposes of the three strikes law, to include felony domestic violence, as specified. By expanding the scope of an enhancement, this bill would impose a state-mandated local program.The California Constitution requires the state to reimburse local agencies and school districts for certain costs mandated by the state. Statutory provisions establish procedures for making that reimbursement.This bill would provide that no reimbursement is required by this act for a specified reason.

Re-referred to Com. on PUB. S.
