Los Angeles & Beverly Hills 3 Strikes Cases Defense Lawyer

3 Strikes Cases Defense Attorney in Los Angeles & Beverly Hills

The California Penal Code describes the nature of a strike offense as violent or serious offense. They can include offenses where there was no physical contact with a victim, such as in a robbery or burglary.  You may be charged with a crime previously that was considered a strike offense and not be aware of it.  When you are suddenly faced with your third strike, you may be in for a big surprise.  As this is a complicated area of the law, you need a Los Angeles Criminal defense attorney who is familiar with which offenses are considered strike offenses and what type of defense can be established to fight your charges. 

Because the laws related to strike offenses are so esoteric, they can lead to problems for those individuals who already have at least one previous strike offense. If you have a prior strike offense and are convicted of any kind of felony, your sentence can double. The penalties on sentencing also reduce your being able to get time off your sentence.  Being charged with a third strike could lead to jail terms of 25 years to life. As you can see, obtaining the services of Marks & Brooklier to defend you is vital.  Contact them today.
