A: Whether or not someone receives jail time for a conviction depends on a variety of conditions, including (but not limited to) the defendant's prior criminal history, the nature of the offense, whether there were injuries to the victims, and if so-the extent of those injuries, the county the charge is being heard in, The judge who was hearing the case, and the prosecutor's intentions.

No attorney could really make an accurate prediction as to what might happen without being able to account for all of those variables.
