Not all felony convictions end in incarceration

Felony charges are the most serious of criminal charges. Many people think that felony convictions always end with the person going to prison. That isn't always the case. There are many instances in which a person might be sentenced to probation if he or she is convicted on a felony charge. We can help you to learn if probation is an option in your case.

It is important to note that not all felony charges carry the possibility that incarceration can be avoided. Some criminal charges, such as drug charges or charges based on violent crimes, might have mandatory minimum sentences that must be adhered to. If you are facing a criminal charge that you think might have a mandatory minimum sentence, you should find out for sure before you make any decisions about your defense.

When a criminal charge does have the possibility of probation, you should find out what options you have to ensuring you get a probation sentence if that is how you want your case resolved. In some cases, it might be possible to work out a plea deal that allows you to be sentenced to probation. Finding out if that is an option in your case might be your best course of action.

Criminal cases that go to trial often don't have a guarantee of a specific sentence. For this reason, you might need to avoid going to trial if you are hoping for probation as a sentence. Criminal cases vary greatly, so let us explain to you how your case is affected by laws and other factors as soon as possible.
