    You will need to speak with an attorney with knowledge of the details of your case to find if anything improper was done.
    If a law was passed after your sentencing it is not necessarily retroactive.
    Have you asked the probation officer for an explanation?

    Don't you generally get more time if you're convicted of something multiple times?

    Not in California.
    The geniuses in the state legislature keep decriminalizing offenses and reducing penalties. Things that used to carry time have been reduced to a citation. It is harder and harder to get a person into the jail, and once in they get out before the ink dries.
