The Three Strikes law is used to discourage repeat offenders and to punish those who commit multiple crimes. This law punishes individuals who have been convicted of multiple serious or violent felonies, and California Penal Code Section 1192.7(c) lists the felony offenses that will count as a strike under this law. Many violent crimes are on this list, such as rape and murder, as well as other generalized criminal offenses. For the most part, repeated violent crimes can be penalized with life imprisonment with no chance of parole.
However, even within the harsh confines of this law, jail time is not automatic and any violent crime case has the chance of being changed to a reduced sentence, dismissed, or concluded with a not guilty verdict.
