Understanding Three Strikes Crimes

Florida Three Strikes Crimes

Miami Criminal Defense Attorney

In July of 1999, Florida implemented its own version of the "Three Strikes And You're Out" Act, a series of laws designed to discourage and implement increased penalties for repeat criminal offenders. Under Florida's Three Strikes Law, a person convicted of three violent felony offenses may face a mandatory minimum sentence of life in prison, regardless of the typical penalties that may be imposed for his or her third conviction.

There are a number of specific criminal offenses that may count as strikes on a defendant's criminal record if he or she is convicted, and this is one of many reasons working with an experienced attorney to avoid a criminal conviction is so important.

Types of Three Strike Crimes

On a website such as this, concerning the defense of violent crimes throughout Florida, it is important to discuss the state's Three Strikes Law.

Following are some examples of crimes which may count as a strike under Florida law:

No matter what offense you may have been arrested for, charged with or may be under investigation for, you will need to involve an experienced Miami criminal lawyer as soon as possible.
