An SIS or “Suspended Imposition of Sentence” is where you are placed on probation. In an SIS you waive your right to a trial and Plead Guilty in Court to some offense (DWI) but the Conviction is not entered onto your criminal record.
Instead the Plea is placed in your file for the term of your probation. If you successfully complete all of the terms of your probation then you will not ever receive a conviction and the criminal case is closed. If you violate the terms of your probation you will face a probation revocation hearing. As a result of the probation revocation hearing the Judge may decide to revoke your probation, enter the previous Plea of Guilty into the record, and sentence you, as your right to a trial will have been previously waived as a part of the SIS.
You can increase your chances of getting an SIS instead of a conviction if you use a lawyer for your trail. Contact the criminal law experts at Traffic Law Stop today at (314) 644 – 7102
