Of California's 7,300 third-strikers, 4,200 are doing 25 years to life for a nonserious or nonviolent felony. Proposition 66 also requires judges to resentence these third-strikers, meaning some who have already served several years behind bars may be freed.yes, restore voters' original intent to keep violent criminals off the street. that's the key. sentencing a man to 25 years for stealing a carton of smokes was not the original intent.
Proposition 66 does not eliminate the three-strikes law. It restores voters' original intent to keep violent criminals off the street for good.
