It is essential that you file a petition for resentencing of felony murder under SB.1437 only if you believe you are eligible.

If you are petitioning and the court rules that you were the actual killer—not an accomplice—you can also be charged for perjury which will add additional time to your sentence. Those eligible for resentencing under SB 1437 are:
1. Certain accomplices to the underlying felony who were convicted of first degree felony murder
2. Accomplices convicted under natural and probable consequences doctrine
3. Those who were convicted of second degree felony murder

Restorecal.org offers a petition template free to use, as well as a more in depth guide to resentencing.
