Voters rejected Proposition 34, and so the state’s death penalty will remain in place. But Californians also amended the so-called three strikes law, so that nonviolent offenders are less likely to spend their whole lives in prison. That second vote suggests that voters may be starting to think more about rehabilitation than punishment. &nbsp;</span> Tue, 13 Nov 2012 00:24:28 +0000 Kyung Jin Lee 19284 at http://kalw.org Prison rehab programs on the rise
