In 1994, the state of California passed three-strikes legislation, meaning that if a person was convicted of two prior serious felonies, a third conviction would result in a life sentence. The convicted would not be eligible for any type of parole until a minimum of 25 years had been served. California has possibly the toughest three strikes criteria of any other state. If you have been charged with a third strike felony offense in the Southern California area, you need to find experienced legal representation immediately.
The Karpel Law Group specializes in three strikes law representation and represents clients in Southern California, Ventura, Orange, Santa Barbara and San Bernardino counties.
Because California has some of the toughest three strikes laws on the books, it is not unusual for those charged to have their charges enhanced or even to have instances of Juvenile crimes becoming part of the previous felonies.
