    Default Stay of Execution vs. Stay of Imposition

    What, if any, is the difference between a stay of execution and a stay of imposition?

    In the context of sentencing, stay of imposition would mean that the imposition of a sentence has been stayed. Stay of execution would mean that the sentence was actually imposed, but that the execution of it has been stayed. For example, if a person received a sentence of six years in a penal institution but execution of the sentence was stayed (usually on certain conditions), the person would not do any time in the penal institution assuming he had complied with his conditions. These distinctions are important as to what happens at the end of the period of imposition or execution. From a defendant's perspective, suspended imposition is usually best for it means that a sentence was never imposed.
