Three Strikes Cases

Defense attorney for Three Strikes Cases in California

Meet former prosecutor Joshua P. Visco – serving now as a criminal defense lawyer with offices in Santa Ana & Rancho Cucamonga, CA.

He has ample experience both prosecuting and defending three strikes cases and is active in the criminal courts of Orange County, Riverside County, and San Bernardino County.

The State of California has a strict “Three Strikes” law that imposes a mandatory minimum sentence of 25 years-to-life in prison when a person has two prior felony convictions that are considered “serious or violent” under the law.

In fact, under certain circumstances, ANY FELONY CAN BE CONSIDERED A STRIKE. 

Some of the most common strike offenses include:

  • Murder
  • Manslaughter
  • Attempted Murder
  • Rape
  • Robbery
  • Arson
  • Assault with a Deadly Weapon
  • Kidnapping
  • Carjacking
  • Sex Offenses
  • Residential Burglary
  • Criminal Threats
  • Any felony committed in association with a street gang
  • Any felony where a victim suffers great bodily injury (including DUIs)
  • Any felony committed while armed with a firearm

If you have been charged with a “three strikes” crime in California, it is absolutely imperative that you contact a skilled, aggressive attorney as quickly as possible.

Conviction needs to be avoided at all costs, and you need an attorney who has the knowledge and experience to petition the court for the charges against you to be dismissed.

I have worked with many clients who have been charged with three strikes crimes and have a proven success record in getting the charges against them cleared, or reduced so the crime does not count as a “strike.”

I will investigate your case for evidence that suggests your innocence and will work with experts who can provide a testimony on your behalf. I will do everything within my power to protect your record, rights and freedoms.

My goal is to keep you out of prison and where you belong – with your family.

With your future at stake, you can’t afford to work with an inexperienced attorney who isn’t familiar with the California three strikes law.

You need someone who understands the legal system and will devote their time and energy to getting you the best end result possible in your case.
