    Question Do You Go To Jail Right After Your Sentencing

    My friend had her trial today back when we got caught shoplifting. For those who don't know, my case is currently closed and all I got was a $150 fine. Anyways, today at her pre-trial my (ex) friend got a $100 fine and 3 days in jail. I tried to call her after I saw it on our local court's website and she didn't answer. My question is, if you get jail time during your sentencing, do you go to jail right after court or do they give you some time before you have to come in? She doesn't have any kids or anything so it's not like she needs to make any arrangements. I know it's really none of my business but I'm just curious because she isn't picking up her phone. Thank you!

    Default Re: Do You Go To Jail Right After Your Sentencing

    For state court matters, it's common for jail sentences to commence at sentencing, although I've seen a lot of cases where the judge granted the defendant some time (hours to days) before turning himself or herself in at the county jail.

    Did you plead guilty or not not guilty at the trial? How did your friend pled?
