As a former Deputy District Attorney, I believe the prosecitor will be seeking 25 years to life. Of course I don't know the strength of their case or the actual charges of the priors but based on the limited information you have provided, he is in trouble and you should seek a qualified attroney who will fight for him. I wish you well.........David Walli.

If he truly has 2 prior strikes (many people are mistaken about their true record), a current serious or violent offense would qualify him for a third strike sentence of 25-life. If the two strikes are from the same case and a Romero motion is granted or if the current offense isn't a strike itself, it takes 25-life off the table.

Under any scenario, he is is a heap of trouble and needs the best attorney he can get.

You need a good criminal defense attorney. I'd strongly suggest you find someone who focuses on criminal law and who routinely practices in the court where this case will be heard.
