If you have 2 strikes can they give you a 3rd strike for the felony disregard to safety and evading?? or does it mean if convicted they are just going to enhance the sentence 5 years longer?? If convicted how much would you be looking at?

  1. Based on the charges you have listed you will not receive a 3rd strike. If convicted you will receive one enhancement for a prison prior. However felony evading is not a strikeable offense.


  2. No strike-just enhancement of previous. Make sure you have counsel.


  3. This case would be treated as a 2nd Strike case. Their sentence would be doubled as to the crime itself and would also include priors and other enhancements. For example, here if the person was convicted and denied probation, the person could spend between 32 months and 6 years in prison + 1 year for any prison priors they have.
