Three Strikes Defense

Are You Potentially Facing Your Third Strike? Marley Law Can Come to Your Defense

California’s three-strike law is harsh, to say the least. It is argued that it has little to no effect on the rehabilitation of felons and only contributes to soaring prison populations. Essentially, the more strikes you obtain, the more the penalties increase. Facing your third strike can get you locked up for good which is why you need a defense attorney that will fight for you.

Being commonly considered as a cruel law, the “three-strike and you’re out” rule tends to have an unfair bias towards minorities. If you or a loved one are potentially facing your third strike, a strong defense attorney is required for the case. Marley Law’s Three Strike Defense is imperative to keeping an accused individual from getting maximum sentences.

Example of the Three Strike System’s Unfairness

There is a reason why the duration of prison sentences is predetermined for all crimes, they have been evaluated and agreed that it is a suitable punishment for it. As the saying goes, “the punishment fits the crime,” the exponential increase in sentencing can be argued as exploitative.

For the following example, we’ll use robbery:

First Strike – The convicted gets the determined sentence of 3, 6, or 9 years in prison based on the case.

Second Strike – The convicted felon now receives a punishment of 6, 12, or 18 years in prison, doubling in duration.

Third Strike – Now the individual gets punished with 25 years to life in federal prison.
