Attorney Scott Miller Explains Georgia’s Sentencing Guidelines
Sentencing for a felony conviction occurs at a time separate from the conviction to allow the judge to take into consideration other factors. During this time, the defendant usually remains in jail. The judge may look at pre-sentencing investigations, which include the defendant’s criminal history, family history, employment record and other relevant information. The judge will also hear victim impact statements. Since there are no felony classes in Georgia, the judge will then determine the sentence based on uniform law.
