The minimum sentence for Fleeing and Eluding 3rd Degree, with a habitual offender notice, is no jail. There is no minimum jail sentence. Just because there is no minimum jail sentence does not necessarily mean that jail will not be imposed. There are literally countless factors that go in to a judge's decisions on sentencing. If you have a lawyer, you should be discussing this matter with him or her and you should insist on clear answers that you can understand. Make sure you question your lawyer about the arguments that he or she is going to make at sentencing and ask about what the plan is to minimize your sentence. If your attorney cannot answer your questions, it may be time to look for a new lawyer.
