Defending Against Felony Charges in Santa Barbara County

Felony charges are prosecuted more severely than misdemeanors and can count towards California's Three Strike Law. Under the Three Strikes Law, if you have two previous strikes against you and you commit a new misdemeanor shoplifting offense, these could be upgraded to a felony, forcing you to serve a 25-year to life sentence.

There is a lot at stake in felonies, so make sure that you understand what you are up against by speaking with a knowledgeable felony crime attorney in Santa Barbara at Appel & Morse.
