When charged with a crime, people often ask how the Prosecutor and Judge determine what an appropriate sentence is. While it is difficult to know exactly what the sentence will be until the discovery process is complete, when a defendant is charged with a felony, prosecutors will prepare a criminal punishment code scoresheet. This scoresheet is one of many tools that help us give you an idea of what the State plea offer will be. Every charge has a degree (1st degree, 2nd degree, etc...) as well as a level (1, 2,...10). The degree of the charge tells you what the maximum sentence can be.
