Third Strike Crimes
You deserve an aggressive defense from an experienced Third Strike crime defense attorney.
California’s Three Strikes law provides for increasingly harsh penalties for repeat convictions for violent felonies and certain other serious drug crimes, gun crimes, or sex crimes. For a Second Strike Offense, you can be sentenced to double the normal penalty for that offense, and for a Third Strike Offense, you can be sentenced to 25 to life.
With such serious consequences at stake, it is absolutely in your best interest to vigorously oppose any and all charges for qualifying Strike Offenses, whether it would be your First Strike conviction or your Third Strike.
At Perlmutter & Pourshalimi, we can provide the aggressive and proactive representation you need and deserve. We can serve as your criminal defense attorney for any type of qualifying Strike Offense such as:
- Child Molestation
- Assault with a Deadly Weapon
- Felonies in which you personally used a firearm
- Felonies with a gang enhancement
- Possession for sale
- Sexually violent offenses
Possible Third Strike Crimes Defenses
If you are facing charges for a Third Strike Offense, we will take the matter extremely seriously, working hard to create and implement a personalized defense strategy that will protect you from the harsh consequences of a Third Strike conviction. There are three possible ways we can accomplish this:
Beat the Charge: If we can prevent a conviction, obviously you will not get another Strike on your record or face any penalties.
Reduce the Charge: If we can negotiate with the DA to have your current Strike Offense reduced to a non-qualifying offense, you won’t face Third Strike penalties even if you are convicted of the offense.
Strike a Strike: If we think we can convince a judge that your case does not fall under the spirit of the Three Strikes Law, we can file a Romero Motion to ask the judge to dismiss one of your prior Strikes. If this happens, you will only be facing a Second Strike instead of a Third.
