  10. Desired Outcome

    Although it is the responsibility of the prosecutor to negotiate and the court to impose the final sentence, your opinion is important and can assist the Office of the Winona County Attorney in negotiating an appropriate plea agreement in this case.  In the following section, please indicate what you would like to see happen with this case. Some of the options are:

    Probation:  The offender's sentence is stayed for a period of time.  This means that the offender does not actually serve a full sentence, but is monitored for a period of time by an agent to ensure compliance with the conditions of probation.

    Jail:  An offender can be ordered to spend up to one year in a local jail.   Offenders with less serious offenses are typically sentenced to jail and not prison, often as part of probation.

    Prison:  Felony cases only. The offender is ordered to spend more than one year in state prison.   Offenders convicted of more serious offenses are sentenced to prison.

    Restitution:  The offender is ordered to pay money to reimburse the victim for losses that are a result of the crime.  More information about the process for obtaining restitution will be sent to you at a later date.

    No contact order:  The offender is ordered to have no contact with the victim.

    Counseling/Treatment:   The offender is ordered to undergo evaluations and/or participate in treatment or programs such as NA, AA, domestic abuse program, chemical dependency treatment, mental health counseling, etc.

    Community Service:  The offender completes hours or days of service to the community as part of probation.
