What sentence will I get if I plead guilty?

The judge imposes the sentence. However, certain offenses have mandatory sentences, meaning a judge cannot order a lesser sentence than is required. Other offenses allow a judge to use discretion to determine the appropriate sentence. If a charge has a mandatory sentence, the judge will inform you of that during the sentencing proceeding.
