Strike cases are most significant when it comes to sentencing: if you are convicted of any felony and you have a prior strike offense it can double your potential sentence.

“Strike” Cases
(Penal Code Sections 667 and 1192.7)

If you need an Orange County Strike Lawyer then contact William W. Bruzzo at (714) 547-4636.

A strike case is any serious or violent felony as defined or enumerated in the California Penal Code. It should be noted that Residential Burglary (that is burglary of a home) is considered a strike offense even if there is no contact with the residents of the home and no violence.

Strike cases are most significant when it comes to sentencing: if you are convicted of any felony and you have a prior strike offense it can double your potential sentence. In addition you can end up serving up to 85% of your time in prison if convicted of a strike offense as opposed to the usual 50%. Most importantly, if you are charged with two or more strike offenses OR you have two prior strike offenses and you get an third conviction (the third case does not have to be a serious or violent felony) then you can serve 25 years to life in prison.

Fortunately, a skillful attorney can persuade the Judge and/or the District Attorney to dismiss a prior strike offense in the interests of justice. In addition a motion can be filed to request the same thing formally of the Judge or the District Attorney.

Attorney William W. Bruzzo has been very successful in getting strikes removed for the purposes of sentencing.
