SB 1437 Resentencing

Los Angeles Defense Attorney for Felony Murder Cases

For centuries, California had a felony murder rule in place that allowed those who committed a certain crime (e.g. robbery) to be liable for any resulting deaths—even if the death was an accident, or the convicted person was not directly involved in the murder. Some have been sentenced to life in prison for a death they were not even initially aware of.

If you are behind bars for a murder you did not commit, a recent reform may allow you to petition for resentencing. Our skilled Los Angeles attorney is here to help you evaluate your situation, navigate the petition process, and obtain the justice you deserve.

What Is Senate Bill 1437?

Fortunately for many of our clients, California recently began a series of criminal justice reforms. One of these reforms is Senate Bill 1437. It amends California’s felony murder rule so that prosecutors must now prove the accused person intended to kill or acted with reckless indifference to life. It has a retroactive effect, meaning it allows individuals to seek justice if they have already been convicted.

As of January 2nd, 2019, those falsely convicted of first-degree murder have been petitioning for resentencing, and with the help of Diamond & Associates, you can as well.

You may be eligible for resentencing if you:

  • Were convicted of first- or second-degree murder
  • Did not commit the murder
  • Did not intend to commit the murder
  • Did not participate in the crime with reckless indifference to the deceased person’s life
  • Were prosecuted under the natural and probable consequences theory (claiming the victim’s death was the natural and probable result of the original crime)
