Can I be required to do jail time with a deferred or a suspended sentence?

Question:

Can I be required to do jail time with a deferred or a suspended sentence?

Answer:

Yes. With a deferred sentence you can have a condition of jail time up to 90 days. With a suspended you can have a condition of jail time anywhere up to the maximum range of punishment. The only difference between the two is that a suspended sentence is considered a conviction and a deferred is usually not considered a conviction. To have the “usually” part explained please contact the law office of Ward Lee & Coats for a free consultation.
