Call a Three Strikes Attorney in Wilmington 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 Wilmington CA right away:
- Sexual crimes
- Certain assaults
- Gang crimes
Our Top Priority is to Beat the Charge
First, let us discuss what we would like to see happen in your case: We would like the charges to be dropped after we show the judge that there is not enough evidence to convict you. If that is not possible, then the next best thing is to take your case to trial and secure a not guilty verdict. While these options are not always reasonable, they are always the ideal and we will begin by exhausting every option to make one of them applicable.
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 Wilmington 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.
