Can my attorney ask for an alternative sentence?
The best Marietta GA criminal defense attorneys can request a lesser sentence to the prosecutor during a plea bargain. If the plea bargain doesn't help, a skilled attorney will quote numerous factual circumstances to the judge and will convince the judge to impose a lighter sentence during a trial.
An attorney can help you in getting your sentences suspended or reduce the sentence to probation, restitution (victim compensation), or community service. If you are facing false charges, a skilled attorney can dismiss your charges and shield you against harsh sentences or penalties.
What's the difference between a felony and a misdemeanor?
If the imprisonment for your crime is longer than a year, it is a felony. If the potential imprisonment for your charge is less than a year, the crime becomes a misdemeanor. Some crimes are called "wobblers," which means that the crime can be either a misdemeanor or a felony depending upon what the prosecutor chooses to charge.
In some cases, the legislatures can label a minor punishment like a fine or traffic ticket as a misdemeanor. For more details on if whether your conviction or crime falls under a felony or misdemeanor, speak to one of the skilled Marietta, GA, criminal defense attorneys.
