Three Strikes Law in California

The Bill of Rights of the U.S. Constitution states that no “cruel and unusual punishments” will be inflicted on the citizens of the United States. In California, the legislators and electors of our state have ignored that important check on governmental power, and instituted a law popularly known as the three strikes law. Under this draconian law, convictions for relatively minor offenses can result in vastly excessive and disproportionate sentences.

Under the “three strikes” law, a conviction for a felony or violent crime can result in a “strike” on a person’s criminal record. With each strike, the sentencing consequences for a defendant will increase dramatically. If you have one felony conviction on your criminal record, you may already have one strike against you. If you receive a second felony conviction, your sentence under the new conviction could be more than doubled. A third strike may be punishable by incarceration in the state prison for 25 years to life.

But there is hope.

If you or a loved one is facing prosecution for a second or third strike offense, you need to hire an experienced defense attorney who understands the complicated three strikes laws and can prepare a defense to “strike the strikes” alleged against you.

Our experienced Los Angeles criminal defense attorneys are familiar with the obscure details, loopholes and exceptions in the complicated three strikes statutes, and with the many defenses available in a strike-related case. We are ready to fight for you today.
