Proposition 36 Modifies "Three Strikes" Law

Posted by Courtney Pilchman | Nov 08, 2012 | 0 Comments

Proposition 36 was approved by California voters on November 6, 2012 revising the current “Three Strikes” law. In California, those with two or more strike convictions cannot be sentenced to life, unless the third strike is a serious or violent felony. In addition, those that have already been sentenced to “life” for strikes that are not considered “serious” or “violent” felonies can have their sentence modified.

If you have a loved one who was sentenced in Orange County, San Bernardino County, Riverside County, Los Angeles County or San Diego County, to “life” for a crime that was not “serious” or “violent” YOU MUST CONTACT OUR OFFICE TODAY to speak to an experienced criminal attorney who is certified by the State Bar of California as a Criminal Law Specialist.

We can petition for re-sentencing and reduce “life sentences” that have already been imposed. Call now for a FREE CONSULTATION.
