That doesn't sound old to me. If you're facing a second or third strike, you should already have a competent defense lawyer working for you. Please discuss your options with her. If you don't have a lawyer yet, get one immediately. The court will appoint one for you if you can't afford counsel.
Your lawyer (this is NOT a do-it-yourself project) should look into filing a Romero motion to ask the court to strike the prior strike for the purpose of sentencing.
You call it "old." It really isn't. Typically, an "old" conviction is 10 or more years old.
