Sentencing Definition

A sentence is a judge’s decision on the punishment and rehabilitative conditions imposed on a defendant following their conviction. A person convicted of a misdemeanor, and most felonies, can be ordered to serve a term of probation that might include time in jail. Typically, terms of probation include drug and alcohol testing, therapy, travel restrictions, compelled school or work, etc. Felony offenders face lengthy jail and prison sentences. Experienced criminal defense lawyers know the most persuasive arguments when seeking lenient sentences.
