Can someone go to jail for life after third strike?

My son's father has two prior drug convictions and we just found out that he got busted again over the weekend. Even tho he and I do not get along, at all, I still feel bad for my son because his dad might not be around in his life anymore. He didn't murder anyone or anything, but this would be considered his third strike.

    Only certain felonies are considered "strikes" for purposes of the three strikes law in Washington. Most drug charges are not strikes.

    The punishment is normally enhanced for a third time felony conviction. It does not automatically mean that he will receive a life sentence.

    The answer to that question cannot be answered without knowing the statutes applicable in your state. You should ask his attorney or an attorney in the county where the case is pending what the consequences of a finding of guilt are for him.
