Sentencing after a conviction for a felony can be a complicated process. Generally speaking, the sentence is a range of months based on the charge for which you are convicted and your criminal history. For each criminal conviction in your past you receive points.
In the chart below, the horizontal axis demonstrates what prior record level you have based on the points assigned for your past criminal convictions. The vertical axis shows the charge for which you have been convicted. Start with the charge for which you have been convicted and move to the right until you get to the block aligned with your prior history level. That is the block that will dictate your sentence.
There are 3 ranges of months in that block. The mitigating range, presumptive range and aggravating range. The range that the judge chooses will depend on the mitigating factors presented by your lawyer and the aggravating factors presented by the prosecutor.
