Many of our clients come to us during the scariest moments of their lives. They've never been in trouble before, and now they are charged with a felony. A common question we are asked is, "Am I going to prison?" Unfortunately, we cannot tell anyone for certain how their case will resolve, but we do inform them of the possibilities.
In Minnesota, a felony case can resolve in several ways. The case could be dismissed, or it could end with an executed prison sentence. In between those two extremes are several options. We'll explain each option starting at one end of the spectrum, a dismissal, and proceeding all the way to the other end, where you become a "guest" of the Minnesota Department of Corrections.
