Anyone who is currently serving a prison sentence that qualifies under this reclassification is eligible to petition for a new, lighter sentence, even if currently incarcerated under Californias “three strikes” law.

Man Charged With Felony For Flying Drone Near Hospital

droneDrones are often thought of as airplane-sized, unmanned aircraft intended to get surveillance video of remote areas or bomb distant targets.
