What does SB 775 mean in California?

SB 775 means justice for those who have been wrongfully convicted of a killing. The law expands on the legal protections stipulated in Senate Bill 1437, which limits who can be prosecuted for murder and felony murder. Under the new law, attempted murder and manslaughter cases will be eligible for the same legal protections as felony murder cases. This means that 1) only those accused of attempted murder or manslaughter with the intent to kill can be prosecuted 2) no one can be convicted of natural or probable consequences murder 3) the law is retroactive, meaning people convicted of felony murder under the old law can petition for a new trial. This is a major victory for justice in California. SB 775 ensures that everyone accused of a killing receives a fair trial, regardless of the circumstances.
