The penalty phase of a felony trial begins immediately after the jury delivers the guilty verdict.

Is the previous statement true or false?

I'm not sure about this question, but based on my text I think it's true.

  1. Well, time spent in jail before trial if no bail is posted is generally subtracted from the penalty jail time but otherwise true.

  2. Thank you, I thought the same, but I guess we were wrong. I figured since it's a felony case they usually decide the sentence even beforehand, so. I'll take it again and fix my mistake. Thanks again!

  3. As I understand it, the penalty phase of a trial begins after the jury renders a guilty verdict. It is to determine the penalty if the judge has options within the law, as to length of the jail term, terms of probation, etc. The penalty is then imposed and served once that has been decided.
