Third Strike Drug Cases
Three strikes law refers to a sentencing scheme in California designed to significantly increase the punishment for habitual offenders. Under California three strikes law, each time a person is convicted of a serious or violent felony offense, they will receive a “strike” on their record. When a person is convicted of a third strike offense, he or she will automatically be sentenced to 25 years to life in state prison. It doesn’t matter if the defendant is convicted of the same felony offense or a different offense, as long as the crime is considered a strikeable offense the three strikes law will apply.
If you are facing a third strike in a drug crimes case, it’s crucial that you seek out the defense representation of a highly trained, skilled, and experienced criminal defense attorney.
