California Three Strikes Lawyer in Fairfield

Serious "Strikes" & Mandatory Minimum Sentences

The "Three Strikes" statute originated from the Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act of 1994. This statute provides for mandatory minimum imprisonment of 25 years to life if convicted of three separate violent or serious felonies. Its goal is to create a "tough on crime" policy that is used to eliminate recidivism. There are numerous states around the nation that have implemented three strike laws, and California has one of the most far-reaching and severe three strikes punishments.

Some common examples of serious "strike" crimes include:

  • Murder
  • Robbery
  • Burglary
  • Terrorist threats
  • Voluntary manslaughter
  • Attempted murder
  • Kidnapping
  • Rape
  • Sexual abuse of a child under the age of 14
  • Certain drug-related crimes

If your charge is considered your third strike, or if you are fighting to have your charge not being counted as a strike, it is crucial that you act fast. See what our experienced Fairfield three strikes lawyer can do to protect your future.
