If I am convicted of a crime, will I be taken into custody immediately?

Back to Miami Criminal Defense Attorney Frequently Asked Questions

Video Transcription

The answer is if you’re convicted in Federal Court you probably will be, not definitely, but probably. If you’re convicted in State Court, depending on the crime you probably will be. Now having said that, very often we as defense lawyers can work out what’s called a Voluntary Surrender. In other words, that you come back after 30 days, 45 days, 60 days, after we get you designated to a certain institution. Or after the prison system designates you and you surrender directly there, or you surrender back in court, or you surrender to the Marshall’s, and they take you to the institution.

It’s much, much better if you can get a Voluntary Surrender date. If you’re convicted after trial though, the odds are, especially in Federal Court you’ll be taken into custody on the spot. That’s why you need an experienced Federal criminal defense lawyer in all Federal cases. Experienced State criminal defense lawyers in State cases, so that everything that can be done for you will be done. You certainly don’t want to be convicted, and you certainly don’t want to be taken into custody on the spot. You want time to get your life together if you’re going to have to do time. You want the best possible lawyering to help you ever step of the way, so call us.
