Three Strikes LawTo keep repeat criminals off the streets, a number of states have passed so-called “three strikes” laws that punish repeat criminal offenders. Today, about half of the states, including New Jersey, have a habitual offender statute on the books.

These three strikes law have often been the subject of much controversy, as they often result in overly harsh punishments for relatively minor crimes. If you have prior convictions, there is no question you need an aggressive criminal defense lawyer on your case.

Three Strikes in New Jersey

Under New Jersey’s three strikes law, offenders with certain convictions are subject to either life imprisonment without the possibility of parole or an extended prison term.

Offenders with two previous criminal convictions who commit one of the following offenses face a life sentence with no parole under N.J.S.A 2C:43-7.1:

  • Murder
  • Aggravated manslaughter
  • Carjacking
  • Robbery
  • Aggravated sexual assault
  • Kidnapping

In cases where an individual has two prior criminal convictions and commits a third offense, the three strikes law is applicable regardless of when the individual was convicted of the previous offenses. The court can also apply the three strikes law if an individual was convicted of a similar offense in another state.
