Enhanced Penalties: The 10-20-Life Law
Some felony cases fall under a certain category of the law that allows a prosecutor to seek enhanced penalties – the 10-20-Life law. Under the 10-20-Life law, a person who faces serious criminal charges may face life imprisonment under certain circumstances.
An example of this type of crime can include a person pulling a weapon or a gun out during a crime. For this type of offense, a minimum sentence would be 10 years. If the gun is used, the person faces a minimum of 20 years. If injury or death is a result of firing the gun, a minimum of 25 years to life imprisonment is sought by the prosecution.
We realize that this will be a frustrating moment and will require a speedy investigation to produce evidence on your behalf. Our team will not leave a single stone unturned in our meticulous investigation of the charges against you. For more information, contact us today!
