What California State Law Considers Wobbler Offenses
California state law also recognizes several crimes that may be considered felony offenses in certain cases. These crimes are known as “wobblers” because, depending on the specifics of the case, they may either be levied as misdemeanor crimes or felonies.
Examples of wobbler offenses include:
Depending on the severity of the crime, infractions falling under the above categories may be determined by the court to be felonies. If any of these crimes relate to you and your case, call our felony criminal lawyer as soon as possible.
What Does California’s Three Strikes Law Entail?
The State criminal code in California also recognizes a “Three Strikes Rule” for repeat offenders of felony charges. Under the Three Strikes Rule, a defendant will face increasingly severe penalties for every repeated felony charge after being convicted the first time.
- If an individual has one felony on his or her record and then is charged with and convicted of a second felony offense a few years later, he or she will be facing more severe penalties upon conviction than their first offense.
- An individual in California convicted of a third felony will automatically find themselves facing 25 years in prison.
