Three Strikes Law dictates that any individual who has two prior "serious" or
"violent" felony convictions, or strikes, on their record will
face between 25 years to life in prison upon his or her third serious
felony conviction. He or she will also be ineligible to receive parole
until the minimum sentence has been served. This particular law gets its
title from the baseball phrase, "three strikes and you're out" and was enacted in an effort to deter repeat offenders from committing
additional violent felony offenses.
While originally applied to all third-time criminal convictions, the Three
Strikes Law was amended by Proposition 36, also known as the Three Strikes
Reform Act of 2012, and now the law only applies to third strike felony
convictions of a serious or
violent nature. The three strikes system also affects individuals with only one "strike"
on their criminal record. A first-time conviction has a certain amount
of leeway in that individuals may be allowed early parole for good behavior
or could be offered probation or rehabilitation services rather than serving
time in prison. If an individual already has one strike on their record,
he or she is required to serve at least 80% of the original prison sentence
before becoming eligible for parole.
