In an attempt to reduce violence and get criminals off the street, California resident’s voted the Three Strikes Law into legislation. Under this law, any person convicted of a third felony “strike” will automatically be sentenced to 25 years to life in prison.  A second felony offense or “strike” will result in an increase in penalties and double the amount of time in prison. If you have been charged with a felony crime, you must contact an experienced Orange County criminal defense attorney immediately, especially if it’s your second or third felony offense. Your freedom depends on it.

Felony crimes that warrant a strike are violent in nature and frequently committed with a firearm.  These types of crimes should not be handled by a novice attorney. Orange County three strikes law attorney Mark S. Devore has defended clients at all six of the Orange County criminal courts, and is highly familiar with the most effective strategies for challenging and arguing against the imposition of the three strikes law.  For over 10 years Attorney Devore has defended people on trial for the following felony-strike crimes:

  • Rape

  • Manslaughter
  • Armed Robbery
  • Grand Theft
  • Drug Trafficking
  • Weapons Charges

  • Arson
  • Kidnapping
