do you think that if a person whom has nothing on thier record (criminally), will be put in prison for the first time they did something that was a felony?

the police are trying to get him for fleeing but he has never done anything wrong to put anything else on his record, is there a better chance the judge will let him off with just a fine instead of throwing him in prison?

  • If I am getting this correct NO he should not get time, but unless he has money, a good attorney and a really clean history he might get locked up.

    NOT EVERYONE IN JAIL IS BAD. It is very sad sometimes that people get caught up in a bad situation and have to fight to survive if he does not prior record and is a good citizen then they will consider it, but how can they consider that fleeing??? It does not sound like it too me.

    Rapist, child molesters, kid nappers and killers, abusers, get less time then people people stealing, vandalizing. It is a screwed up situation. That is why parents lose it and take the law into their own hands.

    I will pray everything turns out right, and if things go bad there is always the media-he shouldn't give up without a fight-especially if he was not fleeing, and not doing anything wrong.

  • he deserves to go to prison for doing something wrong, we shouldn't just let people go bc they WERE good, now they're obviously bad and think they are above the law. it's up to the judge but i think he should go to prison.

  • I guess it depends on why he was fleeing. No body just flees for no reason. So, it is really going to depend on what crime he committed for him to flee as whether he will get prison time or a fine/community service.

  • Judges do look at their records to make a decision, but fleeing is frowned upon, it is all at the discretion of the judge in charge.

  • It really depends on what he did,and how serious it was, in most cases.

    i always thought people that do something to break the law are bad people too but not always. we dont know of the situation but you answered to what was given to you and that doesnt make it fair. He seemed like a good person to begin with and all of a sudden in your mind he's turned into some scum who should be treated like crap. not everyone's a bad person just cause you hear the word "prison" "jail" ect.

    it wasnt serious, it wasnt like a high speed chase or anything, once he was home and turned on his blinker to go into his driveway, the turned on thier lights but were also following him with no lights on for a while and when they stopped him, in his yard, they arrested him for fleeing. OP

  • PRISON time is for felonies only. Jail time, fines, community service, etc is for misdemeanors.

  • Why were they following him? You aren't telling us the whole story or he isn't telling you the whole story. Once you are on private property (your property too) they can't arrest you for say a traffic violation so there is definately more to this story.

  • Yeah, there is more to that story.

    If you weren't there to verify that on your own - then you aren't getting the whole story from him. Sorry.
