Sentencing will either be decided pursuant to a plea agreement with the District Attorney’s office, or in the absence of such agreement, by either a judge or a jury. In any situation the sentencing party will look to the surrounding circumstances, specifically the nature of the case, any past criminal history, any threat to the community, and the steps the Defendant has taken to either rectify the wrong or take responsible for the actions that resulted in the harm. Sentencing options range from mere community service or a fine, to imprisonment in a penitentiary, and even death.
