If charges are filed, how long would it take for the verdict
This can vary very much, depending on the case. If they take a plea deal, it may be over in weeks. If they go to Court
, it make take months to get to trial
. Is it decided by a jury?
Bu default, it is a BENCH trial (by Judge) unless
the Defendant asks for a jury. If they go to trial, many Defendants ask for a jury trial.What would be the nature of sentence typically for this sort of crime?
Again, it can vary widely. If found guilty of both:
CRIMINAL THREAT: up to a year in county jail.
ASSAULT: probation, up to six months in the county jail, a maximum fine of $1,000, successful completion of a batterer's program, and/or community service.
NOTE - either case may be filed as felony or misdemeanor, but likely if filed, it would be so as misdemeanor.
