Will I be sentenced to jail?
We don't know.
You absolutely must consult with a criminal defense attorney, disclose all the facts, and authorize your attorney to investigate on your behalf. Your attorney will let you know if there is a chance of jail time.
In addition, keep in mind:
- Jail time is a potential penalty for many, but not all, crimes.
- A plea bargain may eliminate or reduce jail time.
- Just because you've been arrested doesn't mean you'll be convicted.
