Call a Three Strikes Attorney in Torrance CA if You Are Charged with Any of These Crimes
On paper, the purpose of the three strikes laws may make sense: They are there to prevent dangerous criminals from being repeatedly released to commit more crimes. As a result, when a person is convicted of certain “violent” crimes, they will have a harsher sentence if they have previous “violent” convictions. The third time they are convicted, they will be sentenced to life in prison.
While this may seem to make sense, is it really fair? Or should a person be sentenced based on the specific crime they committed? At Law Offices of Patrick S. Aguirre we have seen this law result in sentences that were flat-out unfair. If you have been charged with any of the following, or another type of strike crime, then you should contact a three strikes attorney in Torrance CA right away:
- Sexual crimes
- Certain assaults
- Gang crimes
The First Option is to Beat the Charges Against You
In a perfect world, your three strikes attorney in Torrance CA would be able to have the charges against you dropped before the case ever went to trial. Barring that, the next best option is to beat the charges in court. Whether or not taking your case to court is the best option for you will depend on a number of factors, including the evidence against you.
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 Torrance 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.
While the best way forward may vary from case to case, one thing is true of every case Law Offices of Patrick S. Aguirre works on: We will look for the best possible outcome for your case. We will fight for your rights. It all starts with a single call to our offices at 800-572-1252 for your free consultation.
