In 2004, Federal District Court Judge Spencer Letts reversed the verdict for a man who was given a mandatory 25-year prison sentence because of the California "three-strikes" law. The accused, M.B., was convicted of his first felony in 1988, after he got in a car accident then stole money from the other driver. A few years later, he was under the influence of drugs and had a fight with his girlfriend, who called the police. In this case, he pleaded no contest to assault, making that his second strike. The last strike was brought on by M.B.'s purchase of less than a gram of crack cocaine, for which he was convicted of drug possession.
