Felony Strike Charges Dismissed on May 4, 2023. Client accepts misdemeanor probation for 12 months.
Our client, Bo, was arrested for PC 245(a)(4), Assault With Force Likely to Cause Great Bodily Injury. He was also charged with an enhancement for committing an allegation of Great Bodily Injury in violation of PC 12022.7. Attorney Kia Feyzjou of Kia Law Firm resolved this case for a misdemeanor version of PC 245(a)(4). The felony charge was reduced to a misdemeanor. His original charge also consisted of a “strike”. In California, PC 12022.7 (great bodily injury enhancement) is a strike. By reducing the felony assault charge to a misdemeanor, the felony strike charge falls off by operation of law. Not only did our client Bo avoid the felony, but he also avoided a strike. In our state, strike charges have significant ramifications. They can affect your life in three ways. First, you would be statutorily ineligible for probation if you commit another felony in the future. In other words, you would be sent to prison a lot easier and faster than someone with no prior strike. Second, instead of serving 50% of your future jail sentence, you are likely to do 85%. Finally, strikers do “double time”. In other words, your future sentence would be doubled. So, if a non-striker is to serve 3 years in prison, the person with the prior strike gets 6 years. At the end of the day, saving clients and protecting their future is our goal. Here, a superior court judge granted our PC 17B request to drop the felony charges. The Judge felt that sufficient rehabilitation had occurred and that our client should not become a convicted felon over the facts of his arrest.
