A guilty verdict in a criminal case can result in various penalties depending on the circumstances of the case. Types of sentencing can include probation, incarceration, fines, community service, court-ordered counseling, completion of a drug or alcohol treatment program, victim restitution, asset seizure and driver’s license suspension. The severity of the charges and a person’s prior criminal history are some of the key factors in sentencing. Crimes involving violence, the use of a deadly weapon, a minor, or that result in injuries or fatalities often result in harsh consequences.
