Los Angeles Three Strikes Lawyer
Three Strikes Attorney in Los Angeles
Three strike cases are felony offenses that have been committed over a set period of time and that are eligible for the three strikes law. The three strikes law was created and approved overwhelmingly by California voters in 1994. It was created to try and keep individuals that commit crimes from becoming habitual offenders. Before the law was ever approved, the general prison population for the ten years prior to the law was up by 400%. Then for ten years after the 3 strikes law was in place, the population was up by 25.5%, making it somewhat of a success for law enforcement. However, the prison population is still overcrowded due to this law. Many individuals committing smaller crimes within the time period allowed for a crime to become a strike are being locked up for double their original prison sentence or 25 years to life under this law.
In most instances overzealous prosecutors may make an attempt to charge an individual with a felony offense whenever possible, especially if it means obtaining maximum case results and incarceration.
