The 43-year-old Downey had several prior convictions for serious offenses. So under California's three-strikes law, he is required to serve the sentences consecutively.

In a rare instance of sarcasm coming through clearly online, one commenter on a mailing list said, "I wouldn't worry about that too much... He probably won't have to serve even half of that sentence."

Here in Ma. we have the three strikes law also but here it means three strikes and you get life in prison.
Personally I don't agree with this law because its too simplified and doesn't take into consideration age,or the type of crime .There are some people who can start out young doing bad things but after repeated incarcerations come to the conclusion crime doesn't pay and their wasting their lives.
I do believe most people depending on the crime deserves a chance to redeem themselves .

Good for that Judge. Not only did this man steal things that others worked hard to aquire but when someone breaks into your home you no longer feel safe in the one spot you should always feel safe. Having been robbed 2 times I think this is fair. If you can't do the time don't do the crime.
