Your Florida Criminal Sentencing Lawyer
Following a finding of guilt by a jury or a plea of guilty or nolo contendere by a criminal defendant, a sentencing hearing will be held in order to determine the appropriate type and length of sentence. Dependent upon the offense, a criminal defendant may face anything from fines to probation and incarceration. Further, the sentence imposed may be mandatorily proscribed by statute or there may be leave for a judge to impose a sentence in accordance with his or her own personal determination of responsibility or necessity for punishment.
It is important to have proper representation in order to ensure that the sentencing process is navigated efficiently and the appellate process is begun without incident. This is where Foundation Legal, P.A. comes in.
