Three Strike Crimes in Santa Clarita

Santa Clarita Criminal Defense Attorney

One of the most serious situations that a defendant may face is charges for a "serious" or "violent" felony offense, which will count as a strike on his or her record. Pursuant to California's Three Strikes Law, a defendant convicted of particular felony offenses classified as serious or violent may face enhanced penalties, including life imprisonment for a third felony conviction. This statute was enacted in an attempt to stop multiple felony offenders.

If you are currently facing charges for a three strike crime or already have one or two strikes on your record, contact a Santa Clarita criminal lawyer at the Law Offices of David M. Wallin today. A former Deputy District Attorney and Certified Criminal Law Specialist, our founding attorney can offer you the level of legal representation that is necessary in the face of these serious matters. He uses his experience as a former prosecutor and his extensive knowledge as a criminal defense attorney to provide hard-hitting legal representation tailored to fit a client's unique needs and the circumstances of his or her case.

About the Three Strikes Law

The "Three Strikes and You're Out" Act works as follows:

  • A defendant will receive a "strike" on his or her record for a conviction for a serious or violent felony (such as rape, robbery, first degree burglary, murder or kidnapping, to name a few).
  • If the defendant is later convicted of a second serious or violent felony, he or she will face double the penalties normally imposed (for example, a 5-year prison sentence would be increased to 10 years).
  • If the defendant is then convicted of any felony offense, even one that is not classified as serious or violent, he or she will then face 25 years to life in prison.

Contact a Santa Clarita criminal defense attorney at our offices to discuss your case and how the Three Strikes Law may affect you.
