Three Strikes Law in California
The California Three Strikes law is a system that multiplies the imprisonment term of a convicted felon. The imprisonment term for a first felony conviction will be any given amount of time, the second conviction will double the term of service. A third conviction of any felony will result in a minimum of 25-years-to-life imprisonment with the possibility of parole. For repeat offenders of any kind of felony, the prison sentence increases drastically.
Conviction of a felony can have very serious consequences such as imprisonment, a severely marred criminal record and even job loss. A second or third felony conviction will trigger the three strikes law which multiplies the penalties for a felony conviction. In some cases, such as DUI felony, if you have a previous felony conviction, your misdemeanor charge may be increased to a felony charge based on your previous issues with this matter.
