3 Strikes


Experienced and Knowledgeable 3 Strikes Representation

At the Law Firm of Sean F. Leslie, my criminal defense attorneys have successfully handled many 1st, 2nd and 3 strikes cases persuading the District Attorneys’ Office or the Judge to “strike” the strike enhancement allegation.

Strikes enhancements can either stem from prior violent felony (Penal Code section 667.5(c)) or prior serious felony (Penal Code section 1192.7(c) convictions. Sentencing under the Strikes law is extremely complex and draconian! Violent strike offenses mandate that the client does not receive 50% good time credits while in custody. Similarly, a client with one prior strike conviction is looking at a doubled sentence and serving 80% of his or her sentence! 25 years to life if you have two prior strike convictions and you commit a simple felony, for example, possession of drugs or a beer run burglary.

If you have been arrested or charged with a strike crime such as murder, manslaughter, burglary, child molest, stabbing, robbery, carjacking, assault with a deadly weapon, criminal threats just to name a few or if you have prior strike conviction on any felony case, then it is imperative that you contact my firm immediately to ensure that your rights will be protected! Again, also invoke your right to remain silent and do not provide a statement to law enforcement. Remember, this silence cannot be used against you! The best way to protect your rights is to speak with and retain an experienced and knowledgeable criminal defense lawyer. That’s where my firm comes in!

Call my Law Firm to speak with a criminal Lawyer not a paralegal or case manager.
