Ok. Say you get charged with misdemeanor harrassment. You plead no contest and accept a plea deal for a deferred judgement. 2 years later, the court maiks a letter saying you have a review hearing, and you do not receive the letter. 2 years later you find out you have a bench warrant for not appearing in court, and that the court has entered a conviction saying the deferred contract was breached due to not updating the court on address change. You have a hearing to lift the warrant, and a hearing is set to see if the court was proper in their conviction. At this hearing, the DA says the court was not proper in entering the conviction due to lack of proper service so the judge sets aside the conviction. Your case is recessed because the DA wants to speak to you. He offers you a plea deal - be convicted and pay a fine. You say absolutely not. You go back in, and a hearing is set. If convicted, you can face up to 6 months in jail.

My question is: with no prior record, is it usual for a judge to sentence jail time on a misdemeanor offense?

Oh, and save the nasty comments. You do not know the situation.

Do you have any idea what to expect? I am waiting on my attorney to return my call.

I really have no idea. Wouldn't you be past the statute of limitations, though? I could be, and probably am, wrong, but it could be worth looking into.
