Serious and Violent Crimes

Serious and Violent Crimes in California are also known as “Strikes.”  A conviction for one of these crimes can result in lengthy prison time and an increased sentence for any future felony.  In fact, prior convictions for two or more “Strikes” can lead to a sentence of life in prison for ANY new felony conviction. Prosecutors and judges treat these crimes very seriously.  Some offices even have Deputy District Attorneys assigned to solely prosecute “Three Strikes” cases.  An experienced attorney like Derek Ewin can make all the difference in the world if you are currently, or if you have been in the past, charged with a Serious or Violent Felony.  “Strikes” include crimes such as Residential Burglary, Robbery, Rape/Sexual Assault, Murder, Carjacking, Drive by Shooting, Assault with a Deadly Weapon, Grand Theft Firearm, any crime in which a Firearm is personally used, any crime in which Great Bodily Injury is inflicted, many Gang crimes and more.
