Presentence Investigation in Plea Bargain Case

Many people in Nebraska might think that once a person has been charged with or convicted of a criminal offense, the things that happen next are relatively routine. However, that is not necessarily the way it goes as every case is quite unique and may not encounter the same steps as another.

In the case of one man charged with stealing a bicycle and a utility task vehicle from a residential property, the judge has actually required that an investigation be conducted before the defendant is sentenced.

As reported by the Washington County Pilot-Tribune & Enterprise, the defendant has agreed to enter into a plea agreement but the original charge he faced is not known. The charge for which he was convicted after pleading guilty to was a Class IV felony. The defendant is said to be currently serving a sentence for a previous offense and it is is not known why he was out of custody at the time of the new incident which occurred last summer.

The new charge could see him spent up to 24 more months in prison followed by a supervision period. A fine of $10,000 may also be ordered. No details were given as to what the judge may want to glean from the presentence investigation. There may be some question as to whether he serves a new sentence consecutively or concurrently with his present sentence. People who face these types of situations might find it helpful to talk with an attorney to understand the proceedings and how the outcomes might impact them.
