    Lawyers agree

    Answered . My book says class D felony is 1 to 5 years in prison.

    My standard disclaimer: I am not offering legal advice, assume I do
    not know the law in your state or at all for that matter and that I am
    just making suggestions for starting points for when you do speak with
    an attorney. Do NOT rely on anything I write and contact a lawyer in
    your area immediately after reading my posting.

    Answered . Assuming no prior record of any significance, you would appear to be a good candidate for probation. Make sure your lawyer has all the facts supporting probation ready to go for the judge to consider.
