This area of our site provides links to superior court Prop. 47 forms. Some trial courts have issued their own local forms for petitions for recall of sentence or applications to have a felony designated as a misdemeanor under Penal Code section 1170.18 (Prop. 47). CCAP has located forms for the following superior courts within the jurisdiction of the Third and Fifth District Courts of Appeal.

Proposition 47 Superior Court Forms

DISCLAIMER FOR APPOINTED COUNSEL IN THE THIRD AND FIFTH DISTRICT COURTS OF APPEAL: If counsel appointed in a Third or Fifth District case believes that a pending appeal presents a Prop. 47 issue that should be pursued in the trial court, counsel should first contact the trial attorney or the local public defender to see if they will file the petition/application for Prop. 47 relief. If trial counsel and the public defender decline to file the petition/application, and appellate counsel wishes to prepare the petition/application for the client, counsel will need to move to expand his or her appointment to seek compensation for the work. An expansion of appointment is required in Third and Fifth District cases for counsel to receive compensation for petition/application work such as this. For more information, see CCAP's article Expanding Your Appointment for Extraordinary Writ Work.

COURT FORMS CAVEAT: Trial courts other than the ones listed below may have their own Proposition 47 forms available. Counsel is encouraged to check for the availability of forms in other counties.

Note that some trial courts require separate petitions/applications to be filed for each conviction the petitioner/applicant wants the court to consider.
