How Does The Three Strikes Law Work?

California's Three Strikes law can lead to very serious consequences for those charged with crimes. The law applies to felony offenses, and provides for the application of harsh punishment against those with one or more felony convictions on their record. If an individual is charged with and convicted of a second felony, the penalty for the second felony is doubled, and a third "strike," even for a less serious crime such as theft, can result in a sentence of 25 years to life in prison.

What Is The Intent Of The Three Strikes Law?

The law was passed with the intent to target violent repeat offenders, but in some cases, it has resulted in the lengthy imprisonment of those whose third crime was not a violent felony. If you are under investigation or have been charged with a crime that potentially subjects you to the application of the Three Strikes law, you should immediately contact a Fresno three strikes defense lawyer.

Harsh Penalties For Three Strikes Cases

A second felony charge is a very serious legal situation not only because of the harsher penalties that are applicable under the Three Strikes law if you are convicted, but because a subsequent conviction exposes you to a potential sentence of 25 years to life.
