The three strikes law in California is controversial. On the one hand, it’s argued that it keeps society safer, but the issue of cruel and unusual punishment is also attached to it. Individuals convicted of multiple crimes are usually referred to as repeat offenders and find themselves up against a big legal fight in the criminal justice system. If a repeat offender is arrested again, he or she faces a wide range of challenges. It seems that in many repeat offender or three strike cases, the court has already made up its mind. They think a person is unresponsive to incarceration or doesn’t care; however, people can’t be universally labeled as such.

How Does the Three Strikes Law Work?

Under the three strikes law, a person is given a 25 years to life sentence upon a third offense if he or she has prior serious or violent felony convictions. An individual may receive such a devastating sentence even if he or she is convicted of a non-serious, nonviolent offense. Wobbler crimes, which are crimes that may be tried as a misdemeanor or a felony, can lead to a second and third strike enhancement. Juvenile convictions may also count as a strike offense. And lastly, several strikes may be charged from one crime or incident.

Whether you or a loved one has been arrested and faces charges for a second strike or a third strike, Mr. Low may be able to assist you in building an effective case for results in your favor.
