California's Three Strikes Laws
Three Strikes & You Could Face a Life Sentence
Under California's three-strikes law, a person who is convicted of any felony after having previously been convicted of two or more prior strike felonies (serious or violent felonies), regardless of the time elapsed between offenses, can be sentenced to life in prison. In addition, once a person has received their first strike, the penalties for subsequent felony offenses increase dramatically. Not all felonies constitute "strikes" — you should consult an El Dorado County criminal defense attorney right away to determine if your current charge (or prior) is a strike.
No matter if you are facing charges for your first strike or your third, be sure that you have strong representation from a criminal defense lawyer who understands the three-strikes law and can fight to protect your rights.
