California Three-Strike Law

California’s Three strikes law is designed to ensure longer prison sentences and harsher punishments for those who commit multiple felonies. As of June 30, 2010, the California state prison population had 32,479 second-strikers and 8,647 third-strikers. Since any felony conviction can trigger "strike" sentences—even a “wobbler” or nonviolent offense—strikers are serving lengthy sentences. Wobblers are crimes that can be charged as misdemeanors or felonies. Many people are serving sentences for a wide range of convictions, including receiving stolen property, possessing a controlled substance, to kidnapping to murder.

Felonies that are considered strikes often include:

  • Arson
  • Battery resulting in serious injury
  • Burglary
  • Kidnapping
  • Murder
  • Sex crimes
  • Weapon charges

The Sentencing of Three Strikes Law

California’s law targets both “second” strikers and “third” strikers. If a person is convicted of any serious or violent felonies more than twice, they must be sentenced to at least 25 years to life in state prison. This law also implements other punitive measures, like eliminating the possibility of probation and the ability to earn custody credits.

Custody Credit Calculation in Strike Sentences

California prison inmates earn “custody credits” for time served with good behavior. These credits can help an inmate serve only 50% of their sentence. Unfortunately, the three strikes law limits this privilege. A second striker must complete at least 80% of his or her sentence before being eligible for release, and 85% for inmates convicted of a violent felony.
