    printer friendly version

    Question: I am being charged with credit card fraud but have no record, is it possible to get probation?

    Answer: Yes. Most often, first time criminal offenders are placed on probation for their crime. The exceptions to this are crimes that involve the death or serious physical injury of the victim or crimes in which the defendant used a weapon, such as a gun or knife. Credit card fraud does not fall under these exceptions and typically, the prosecutor will offer a plea agreement that will place the defendant on probation. Even if the defendant is convicted at trial, however, the judge is likely to place a defendant on probation if he does not have any prior criminal record.

    I was charged with an A class felony and i had no choice to do the crime or not i was obligated and i recieved ten years of probation, and a chance of going to Hillcrest if i mess up one more time. The police said even though i was forced to act on the illegal act i still have to pay the consequences. Do you think this is right?
