How can my daughter avoid getting three strikes when she is falsely accused of the third strike?

My daughter has two strikes. One for taking $400 out of my bank account and another for kicking out a police car window. She was on crack for 15 years. She is clean now for nearly five years. She is accused of stealing money, marijuana and credit cards out of a purse where she was babysitting. My daughter is NOT A LIAR! She will admit what she has done and doesn't like liars. She did not do what the people are saying. It is her word vs. their word. She has babysat for others and has always been called back to babysit again and again. Never a problem because she is not a thief. She loves her two girls very much (ages 8 and 3) and is so afraid that she will be imprisoned under the three-strike law. I am in a wheelchair and she is so good to me and tries to make up for the years that she was on drugs. (She was gang-raped when she was twelve and that destroyed her.) She began using crack at 15. Please, please help! I am devastated and so is she.

    Find a good criminal defense attorney to go over her "strikes" with you.. If need be, go to the free clinic. There is a difference between "strikes" and history. Your daughter is in the position she is in because of her history. What you are calling her "strikes" do not sound reasonable. $400 from your bank account and 2nd "kicking out" a police vehicle window? What else did she do? There must be more to her history than what has been written. The last charges sound like the worst.

    None of those qualify as strikes. Strikes are crimes like murder, robbery, sex offenses, anything which involves great bodily injury, any crime which involves the use of a gun or deadly weapon.
