In Orange County CA I plead guilty to a charge of possession of illegal pornography. It's a plea deal for a 60 day sentence and I will serve 30 days. I'm 50 years old with no priors. Sentencing is later this month (July 2018).
What happens at sentencing? Am I taken away in handcuffs to the much described Awful LOOP at OC Central Jail immediately or am I given a date to report to jail? I'm having nightmares about all of this.
Can I apply for home confinement or some sort of work program? Who applies for this - myself or my attorney? When do I apply? I have a public defender that never returns my phone calls and I always get railroaded by what will happen at the last minute at every court date with this public defender. Any information you can provide would be GREATLY appreciated by me and my family. THANK YOU.
You should be asking your lawyer. If you stop accusing him of "railroading" you, the conversations may be more productive
This is NOT legal advice. It is a general discussion of legal principles by a California lawyer, and does not create an attorney/client relationship. You should always consult PRIVATELY with an attorney. Free consultation only applies to potential clients with a criminal case within 100 miles of Chico, California.
You may be indeed remanded at sentencing. Ask your attorney if you can request a surrender date a few weeks after sentencing to get your affairs in order prior to going to jail.
Encourage you to speak to your lawyer about this...
