California governor signs criminal justice reforms, eases prison terms
California Gov. Jerry Brown bucked prosecutors and some other law enforcement groups Wednesday, signing a package of bills, including some that will shorten many prison and jail sentences for both juveniles and adults. Brown has made rolling back some of California's harsh sentencing laws one of his signature issues, and several of the bills he signed build upon laws and policies he's pushed over the past seven years.
