More or reforming three-strikes in California

As noted here, Los Angeles County District Attorney Steve Cooley has become a leading advocate of reforming California's harsh three-strikes law.  This Los Angeles Times story details that at a press conference on Thursday, Cooley "endorsed reform legislation sponsored by Sen. Gloria Romero (D-Los Angeles) and written by defense attorney Brian Dunn."  Additional news coverage here notes that "Los Angeles Police Chief William Bratton and Sheriff Leroy Baca also support the bill."
