Felonies are very serious crimes and are referred to as “high crimes” in the U.S. Constitution.

What is a “strike”?
In Florida, anyone convicted of a felony offense can receive a “strike” if they are convicted of a serious felony offense. If a person receives a third “strike” then they could remain in prison for a lifetime without the possibility of parole. The “three strikes law” came about in 1994 because of public outrage involving criminals repeating the same behavior over and over again. Many of the crimes qualifying for a “strike” involve violent crimes that include rape, child molestation, assault and murder.
