The Three Strikes Law

Advocacy from Our Pasadena Criminal Defense Attorney

The three strikes laws are statutes that have been enacted by various states across the country. Under the three strikes statutes, the state courts are required to impose a life sentence on a person who has been convicted of three or more serious crimes. Today, twenty-four states have enacted some form of habitual offender laws. In the state of California, if a person is convicted of any felony and has two or more “strikes” or convictions for strike offenses, then he or she will be sentenced to at least a period of 25 years to life in prison.

If you have a prior criminal record and have been charged with an offense, it is essential that you retain capable and trial-ready defense counsel. At The Law Offices of Paul S. Geller, Mr. Geller is a former Los Angeles prosecutor with nearly two decades of experience in our criminal justice system. We're prepared to provide aggressive, effective defense strategies and ensure that our clients receive the consideration they deserve.

California's Three Strikes Law

California’s three strikes law is not only targeted at third strikers, it also targets “second strikers” as well. Therefore, if a person is convicted of any felony and has one prior (strike) on their criminal record, then they will be sentenced to double the prison term for their current offense.

California enacts some of the harshest criminal sentencing measures for habitual offenders. If you are facing a second or third felony offense in California, then it’s absolutely critical that you enlist the services of a criminal defense attorney from the Law Offices of Paul S. Geller.
