Common Criminal Penalties

Once convicted, a defendant will face the sentencing phase to determine the appropriate punishment.

Criminal convictions can result in any of the following penalties:

  • Fines
  • Prison or jail time depending on the length of sentence
  • Probation
  • Suspended sentence if probation conditions are violated
  • Payment of restitution
  • Community service
  • Drug and alcohol rehabilitation

Criminal Sentencing Process

The sentencing will typically begin right away once convicted for infractions and lesser misdemeanors or when the convicted entered a guilty plea. Other cases such as serious felonies will take longer to reach a sentence: the judge will usually receive input from the prosecutor, the defense, and the probation department.

Factors that affect sentencing include:

  • Defendant's criminal history
  • Nature of the crime, manner it was committed, any injuries, and impact on the victim(s)
  • Expression of any regret or remorse by defendant
  • Defendant's personal, economic, and social circumstances

The sentencing judge will also consider punishments and sentencing ranges identified in applicable criminal statutes along with a number of case-specific factors.

What To Do If You've Been Arrested

Remain Silent

One of the most important things you can do to win your case is to stop talking. When you talk to the police about any portion of your case, you may already be giving up strategies that could win your case. For example, explaining that you were at the scene of a crime, but saying that you were not involved in the crime may not help you.

It may be that your attorney decides that the police cannot even put you at the scene, much less prove your involvement. By telling the police that you were there and not involved, you have given up the right to make the police prove that you were there to begin with. Now, your trial becomes about the fact that you say were not involved, when it could have been about proving that you were even there.

Call an Attorney Immediately

Most people wait until the police arrest them, charge them, and they have a court date before calling lawyers. This is a bad strategy. Once you are in a courtroom, a prosecutor has already been assigned to your case and guess what their job is? That is right, prosecute! And who are they going to prosecute now? You! This means that your case has already begun to take the downhill toward a trial. Your lawyer now has to prepare for and perhaps have a trial in your case to fight the prosecutor who is intent on gaining a conviction.

Early Intervention with an Attorney Is Key

Trials are expensive, time consuming, and do not produce certain results. If your lawyer can avoid the prosecutor's ability to go to trial by preventing charges from being filed, you may save thousands of dollars and a lot of stress. At the Mathur Law Offices, P.C., our legal team has been successful at avoiding and mitigating charges.

Sometimes a good lawyer who gets involved early can get a case dismissed. Dismissals happen three ways:

  • An agreement by the prosecutor and defense attorney to dismiss the case
  • A judge dismisses the case because of insufficient evidence to go to trial, such as a witness not showing on the date of trial or certain evidence being inadmissible
  • A defense attorney moves for a dismissal because of a legal defect in the case

If a case is brought to a lawyer's attention early after the events leading to the accusation occurred, the lawyer will have a better chance at all three forms of dismissal. Our office has been particularly successful at dismissals in all three ways; you can be confident knowing we will go the distance to protect you.

Choosing the Right Criminal Defense Attorney

With any criminal case, the stakes are high because your future hangs in the balance. This is why it is so important that you hire a seasoned attorney to make sure you are treated fairly throughout the criminal process. Hiring the right criminal defense lawyer can make a significant difference in the outcome of your case.

What are the benefits of an experienced criminal attorney?

  • Your attorney knows the laws, your rights, and how the criminal justice system works.
  • Your attorney can protect you from serious penalties and seek a reduced sentence or even help you avoid incarceration altogether.
  • Your attorney has the resources to build an effective defense, such as knowing where to look for evidence and the right experts to consult when analyzing evidence.
  • Your attorney is familiar with the key players in your case, including law enforcement officials, prosecutors, judges, and more.

Whether you have been arrested for a minor or major offense, our attorneys at Mathur Law Offices, P.C. can fight for you.
