Know the factors that are used for sentencing

Many factors affect the defense of a criminal charge, so anyone who is facing these charges must consider carefully what they will do at each stage of the process. One component of the trial that many people might overlook is the sentencing phase. Some might think that they don't have to worry about it because they assume that they will be found not guilty. Even if you think that, it is still a good idea to consider what might come into the picture with sentencing.

Some criminal cases end with a jury trial

When you are charged with a criminal case, you might decide that you want to have your case heard by a jury. This is a fundamental right that is guaranteed by the Sixth Amendment of the United States Constitution. Many people think that it applies to all cases; however, it doesn't. Only criminal cases that can lead to at least six months in prison are guaranteed a trial before a jury of the defendant's peers. If you do opt to pursue a jury trial instead of working toward a plea deal, you should have a basic idea of what is going to happen.
