How much time will someone get if charged with pc29800(A)1

How much time will someone get if charged with pc29800(A)1 and pc667.5(b)

Hello.

 

The maximum penalty for PC 29800(a)(1) is three years incarceration. PC 667.5(b) is not a separate offense but a sentencing enhancement for prior felonies. It means that if the person receives any jail time for the PC29800 conviction, then the court must impose 1 additional year of jail consecutively for each prior felony conviction on the person's record. So if they receive 2 years on the first charge and have one prior felony, the sentence would be 3 years.

 

There's no way to know for sure what the sentence will be because it depends on a lot of factors like prior record, the temperament of the judge and the prosecutor, etc. But that is the general outline of what the person is looking at.
