SB 81 – (Skinner) Status: 09/09/2021 Assembly amendments concurred in. (Ayes 22. Noes 11.) Ordered to engrossing and enrolling. Legislative Counsel’s Digest: Existing law generally authorizes a court to dismiss an action or to strike or dismiss an enhancement in the furtherance of justice. This bill would, except as specified, require a court to dismiss an enhancement if it is in the furtherance of justice to do so. The bill would require a court to consider and afford great weight to evidence offered by the defendant to prove that specified mitigating circumstances are present. The bill would provide that proof of the presence of one or more specified mitigating circumstances weighs greatly in favor of dismissing an enhancement, unless the court finds that dismissal would endanger public safety, as defined.
