Fullerton Three Strikes Law Attorney

What is California’s Three Strikes Law?

The "Three Strikes” law is California's answer to repeat offenders, and it could give you a life sentence for what is otherwise a very minor crime. The law essentially gives you "strikes" for serious felonies, and after the third felony, your sentencing penalties will escalate dramatically. You can receive anywhere from 25 years to a life sentence for your third serious offense, even when a first-time offense for the same violation would barely include any jail time.

California has one of the harshest stances in the country against repeat offenders, but your rights should never be trampled. At The Law Office of Jacqueline Goodman in Fullerton, Attorney Jacqueline Goodman proudly stands at the ready to bring tenacious and experienced criminal defense representation to clients in dire situations. She focuses all of her knowledge and experience gained across the last 20+ years of her criminal defense career to prevent another strike from being added to your criminal record. An acquittal, dismissal, or careful negotiations with the prosecution could all work, and Attorney Goodman knows how to handle them all.

You need serious defense when facing a strike-eligible charge. Call our firm at (866) 294-8952.

How Does a Strike Get Added?

You receive your first strike when you are convicted of a violent or serious felony, such as:

If you receive one strike for any of these offenses, the law becomes much stricter for your second or third strike. The jail time used in sentencing will usually double, for example, if you get a second strike for the same offense as the first. The third strike will typically carry a prison sentence of 25 years at least.

It is also important to know that after strike one, any felony counts as a strike. Even a nonviolent drug crime will add a strike to your record if it is a felony and if you have a preexisting strike.

When Choosing A Lawyer, Experience Matters

With the Three Strikes law written in a way that benefits prosecutors and unfairly penalizes defendants, you need to choose a law firm that can take immediate and correct action to protect you. Call Attorney Jacqueline Goodman to make sure your Three Strikes defense case in Fullerton ends up in front of a legal professional with the experience and know-how needed to see your case through to a positive outcome.
