Am I Going to Jail?!

This month, we’re going to explore some of the common questions that goes through a person’s heads when they run into some legal challenges. One of the main questions that many people ask is “Am I going to jail?”. Let’s break down this question and give you some insight on the top three factors that a prosecutor will take into account when considering punishment for a crime.

The first factor that will determine whether or not you may face jail time is the severity of the crime that you are being charged with. This can be anything from a misdemeanor like possession of marijuana to a larger felony like first-degree burglary. The type of crime that you are being charged with has the largest impact on the likelihood of you facing jail time. While there is no guarantees, the likelihood of jail time for a simple misdemeanor is much smaller than that of a more serious crime, such as armed robbery or murder.

The second factor that is taken into account when determining whether or not you will serve jail time is the strength of the evidence against you. If there is video evidence, multiple witnesses, DNA, and a signed confession, then the evidence against you is pretty strong, therefore increasing the likelihood that you will serve jail time. However, if there is no concrete evidence against you, then the prosecution’s case against you is considered weak. An example would be if there is only one witness and he or she cannot be found, or trusted.

The third factor that is taken into account in the likelihood of whether or not you will spend time in jail is your personal history. If you have a clean record, this will likely be taken into consideration by the prosecution and the judge. However, if you have a long history of run-ins with the law, or you are a repeat offender of the same crime, this may increase the likelihood of you going to jail.

The last factor that doesn’t make the top three on this list, but is vitally important, is who you choose to represent you. A mediocre, or inexperienced attorney can easily mean the difference between a favorable outcome and a full-blown blown disaster for you. Avoid disaster. Call Marcy Fassio. Risking your freedom with a bad attorney is not a decision that anyone can afford to make.
