California Sentencing Enhancements
Zealous Criminal Defense Attorney Fighting for Clients in Modesto and Throughout Stanislaus County
Over recent years, California has come to be known as a progressive state when it comes to criminal justice reform. However, one of the reasons why the state has been able to make such strides is because the California sentencing enhancements are among the strictest in the country. In many cases, a sentence for enhancement time far exceeds the sentence for the underlying offense. If you face criminal charges in Modesto and the prosecutors are alleging enhancements, it is essential you reach out to an experienced criminal defense attorney. At the Law Office of Rebecka A. Monez, we have extensive experience effectively dealing with the California sentencing enhancements and do everything possible to take the possibility of receiving enhancement time off the table.
What Are the California Sentencing Enhancements?
Under California law, judges determine your sentence depending on the type of crime you were convicted of. However, years ago, state lawmakers also passed a series of sentencing enhancements that expose certain individuals to additional penalties if the government can prove certain additional facts.
Most California sentencing enhancements fall into two categories: firearm enhancements and gang enhancements.

2023 Litigator of the Year
The American Institute of Trial Lawyers is an invitation-only professional organization composed of premier trial attorneys from each state. These attorneys exemplify the very best qualities and qualifications of an attorney. Each attorney must meet stringent qualifications as a civil or criminal trial attorney.
An attorney who is selected as a Litigator of the Year possesses the knowledge, skill, experience, and success of a seasoned litigator. Very few attorneys from each region will receive such recognition. In fact, less than .03% of attorneys will even be nominated. This recognition is given out yearly.
