What Is The California Three Strikes Law?
The California Three Strikes Law is a sentencing law that imposes stricter penalties on individuals who have been convicted of multiple serious or violent felonies. It was enacted in 1994 as a response to high-profile crimes and aims to deter repeat offenders.
Under the Three Strikes Law, if a person has two prior convictions for serious or violent felonies, their third felony conviction can result in a mandatory prison sentence of 25 years to life. The law significantly increases the penalties for repeat offenders, with the intention of keeping habitual criminals off the streets and protecting public safety.
However, it is important to note that not all felonies qualify as strikes under the law. Only specific serious or violent offenses, such as murder, rape, robbery, and certain drug offenses, are considered strikes. Non-serious or non-violent offenses do not count as strikes.
If you or a loved one is facing a potential third strike under the California Three Strikes Law, it is crucial to seek the guidance of an experienced Los Angeles criminal defense lawyer who specializes in handling Three Strikes cases. Our firm, Law Offices of Scott R. Spindel, has years of experience defending clients in Los Angeles and throughout California.
