It is important to note that this is a basic chart showing maximum sentencing for one charge at a time. You may be charged with multiple crimes and punishment may be stacked or they may run concurrently. Many sentences are followed up with some amount of probation. Being on probation allows you to be out of jail but is still a restriction on your freedom. While on probation, you will have to visit your probation officer every month, you will have to pay a monthly probation fee, you are subject to random drug testing, you are limited on where you can travel and when you can be out of your home, and you are subject to other freedom limiting terms.
