A conviction for committing a crime can ruin your life. Even if you are sentenced to probation or receive a deferred sentence, you will still have a criminal record that can be accessed by anyone, including potential employers. If you are sentenced to jail time, you could spend up to a year in a county jail or several years in prison depending on the crime that you committed. Depending on the offense that you are found guilty of, you may also be subject to sentencing under the state’s Three Strikes law, which has enhanced penalties including life imprisonment.
