Laws change all the time and with half of 2015 already over, we bet you don’t know a lot of the new laws that came into play at the beginning of the year. There were over 900 new laws in California, including the following:
- Unless it’s printed in a book, online, or at a state museum for educational and historical purposes, the Confederate flag may not be displayed or sold, including objects with an image of the confederate flag on it.
- Inmates do not need to be sterilized, but if their life is in danger, the state prison may force them to.
- Active and veteran military personnel may be subject to a diversion program if they are convicted of a misdemeanor, but also suffer from service-related trauma or drug abuse.
- Workers are entitled to a minimum of 3 days of paid sick leave each year.
- If they meet all court-ordered requirements, juveniles convicted of a crime will have their records sealed automatically.
- A person can get 10 years to life in prison if they are convicted of aggravated arson where damages and firefighting costs are $7 million or more.
