Three Strikes Law

Felonies are serious crimes that are punishable by imprisonment, including life sentences, or both fines and imprisonment. The increasing cases of habitual offenders have forced most states to adopt new rules to deal with the problem of repeat offenders.

The “Three Strikes Laws” deal with issues of repeat offences to try and deter the problem of habitual offenders.  Certain offences like sex crimes, driving under the influence, and domestic violence are treated under this penal code.
