Almost 3,000 inmates have been released in California because of Proposition 47, a voter-approved law that reduced some non-violent crimes from felonies to misdemeanors.
State officials said it's helping solve California's prison overcrowding problem, while some are worried about the consequences it's having on public safety.
For one Rancho Cordova woman, Prop. 47 is a second chance at life.
"Now, that all my felonies are gone, it opens up a whole new door," Toni Hunter said.
On Friday, a judge reduced her felony convictions to misdemeanors under Prop. 47.
"I'm just elated," Hunter said.
Hunter said her criminal history started when she stole baby formula and diapers for a friend. After that, came more petty theft charges, prison time and probation. And then, she failed to report a change of address on time.
