California State Bill 136 is a new bill in 2020 that modifies sentencing for defendants facing sex crimes. The new bill would impose an additional one-year term served for each prior separate prison term served for a conviction of a sexually violent offense.

The current law imposes an additional 3-year sentence for each prior separate prison term served by a defendant where the offense was a violent felony. For all other felonies, the law imposes an additional one-year term for each prior separate prison term or county jail felony term.
