California Three Strikes Law
Tough Defense Against Serious Charges
If you have two or more strikes on your criminal record here in California, you are likely aware of the California Three Strikes Law. This law states that a person who has two or more strikes on their record and is convicted of a third felony will face a term in prison for twice the minimum term or a life sentence in prison.
Law enforcement, the courts, juries, and judges are very tough on repeat offenders. It is incredibly important to your future that you hire a Santa Rosa three strikes attorney to defend you aggressively if you are facing a third strike. The law will be tough on you, and you will need an equally formidable lawyer on your side.
A few examples of serious and violent crimes that can be prosecuted under the three strike law:
- Murder / attempted murder
- Sexual abuse of a child
- Carjacking with a deadly weapon
- Forced oral copulation
- Felony punishable by death
- Felony punishable by life in prison
- Felony using a firearm
- Felony inflicting serious bodily injury
- Drug charges
Even certain juvenile offenses can be counted as a strike. So if your child has a previous record, he or she may spend a significant part of their adult life in prison.
