Serious offenses such as violent crimes can result in years of incarceration in a state prison. You may also be facing a lengthy jail sentence if you are a repeat offender. A guilty verdict in a criminal case can lead to other criminal sanctions as well, such as heavy fines, driver's license suspension, community service, mandatory alcohol or drug treatment and sex offender registration.
