Prop 200 and Probation

Prop. 200 1st Strike: If you are convicted of your first drug offense, the law requires that you be placed on probation, and the law does not require you to be sentenced to any jail or prison time. As part of your probation, you will be required to pay a fine. You will also be required to participate in drug counseling and/or education while oftentimes being required to complete some sort of community service.  See http://www.tascsolutions.org/tasc-services/diversion/
Prop. 200 2nd Strike: If you are convicted of your second drug offense, the law still requires that you be placed on probation; however, the law allows for you to be sentenced to a jail term as part of your probation term. You will be required to pay a fine for this offense as well. Further, you may still be required to participate in drug counseling and/or education while still being required to test regularly for drug use.
Prop. 200 3rd Strike: If you are convicted of your third drug offense, you are no longer protected by Prop. 200. If the offense is a felony, you are subject to the same potential punishments as any other person charged with a felony offense, including prison.
