Three Strikes

Helping Clients Who Face Three-Strikes Penalties

California has a three-strikes law that is among the toughest in the United States. This law requires sentences of 25 years to life for repeat offenders convicted of three serious felonies or violent crimes. And if you have one strike (prior conviction) and are convicted of a second felony, your sentence is automatically doubled.

Long Sentences for Minor Offenses Under Three Strikes

The three strikes law results in exceedingly long sentences for relatively minor offenses. There are many stories of people serving 25 year sentences for stealing a tire or not paying a delivery person for a pizza.

At the Law Offices of Jess C. Bedore III, in Roseville, California, we understand what is at stake if you have a prior felony conviction. We work hard to protect you from serving a long sentence for a minor offense.
