Will I go to jail if I am convicted of a crime?

It depends on the offense. Judges have discretion when it comes to sentencing and can impose punishment that includes community service, fines or rehabilitation. However, upon a conviction for some very serious crimes, a judge is required to send the person to prison or jail. Mandatory prison time is imposed for serious crimes that include murder, rape and certain drug offenses.
