Understanding When You Need a Three Strikes Attorney in San Diego CA
California is one of many states in the United States that has Three Strikes Laws. On paper, the purpose of these laws is to prevent repeat, violent offenders from being able to reoffend. The way it works is that each “strike” comes with a larger penalty than the last one, with the final strike resulting in life in prison.
In additional to state Three Strikes Laws, there is also a federal version. Some of the crimes covered by both state and federal Three Strikes Laws include:
- Certain assaults
- Gang crimes
- Sexually violent offenses
It may seem that these laws are reasonable on paper, but the reality is often very unfair penalties. Only an experienced three strikes attorney in San Diego CA can provide qualified help in these circumstances.
Trust Your Three Strikes Attorney in San Diego CA to Work to Beat the Charges
First and foremost, our job is to work to have the charges dropped before the case ever goes to trial. If the evidence against you is weak and the prosecutor insists on going to trial, then we will fight tirelessly for your freedom. Obviously, you will not suffer consequences of the three strikes law if you are not convicted of the crime you are facing.
It May Be Possible to Have the Charge Reduced to a Non-Strike Offense
In the event that there is too much evidence to have the charges dropped or reasonably risk going to court, we may be able to negotiate with the prosecutor to have the charges reduced. The ideal would be to have the charge reduced to a non-strike offense. This charge will likely come with a lower punishment on its own, and when you add the removal of the strike enhancement, it can easily be the best option in many cases.
Your Three Strikes Attorney in San Diego CA May Work to Strike a Prior Strike
In the event that it is your second or third strike and you want to plead guilty, we may file a motion asking the judge to dismiss a previous strike. Whether or not this will be approved will depend on the charge you are currently facing as well as the past offenses you were convicted of or plead guilty to.
