The three strikes law states that defendants with three prior felony convictions must serve the maximum sentence without the possibility of parole.

Legal Process in Felony Cases

After an arrest, an arraignment is held within 72 hours. During the arraignment hearing, the charges are read in court and the defendant will enter a plea, either guilty, not guilty, or no contest, which means you neither dispute the charges nor admit guilt. After the arraignment, the attorney and defendant will prepare for trial. It is important to contact an attorney as soon as possible to begin preparing your defense.
