Understanding Florida's Three Strikes Law

In Florida, a "Three Strike" crime refers to a criminal offense committed by a person who has two prior convictions for certain serious offenses. Under Florida's Three Strikes law, a person who is convicted of a third qualifying offense can face a mandatory minimum term of imprisonment of 25 years to life in prison.

Examples of qualifying offenses include, but are not limited to:

Impact of Three Strikes on Sentencing in Jacksonville

The Three Strikes law has a significant impact on sentencing for repeat offenders. 

  • Harsher Sentencing: Under the Three Strikes law, repeat offenders who commit serious or violent crimes can face increasingly severe penalties. A third offense, even if it is non-violent, can result in a mandatory and lengthy prison sentence, often without the possibility of parole.
  • Longer Prison Terms: The law typically involves mandatory minimum sentences, meaning judges have limited discretion when sentencing repeat offenders. This can lead to longer prison terms compared to individuals convicted of similar crimes but without prior offenses.
  • Life Sentences: In some cases, when an offender accumulates three qualifying convictions, they may receive a life sentence or an extended term of imprisonment.
  • Deterrence and Incapacitation: Proponents argue that the Three Strikes law serves as a deterrent and incapacitates repeat offenders by keeping them off the streets for an extended period, thereby protecting society.
  • Criticisms and Controversies: Critics of the law argue that it can lead to disproportionate sentencing, particularly for non-violent offenses. Some argue that mandatory life sentences for non-violent repeat offenders do not effectively address rehabilitation or reduce recidivism rates.
