Criminal Defense Attorney Preston Edwards explains exactly what a Prayer for Judgement is and why it may or may not be right for your situation. A PJC can only be granted after a guilty plea has been entered, this means the conviction will remain on your record. You may be protected from negative sentencing, but you might also limit your ability to appeal or extend the time required before you can get an expungement. However, every case is different. If you are facing charges and are considering a Prayer for Judgement Continued, you should contact one of our Defense Attorneys and set up a consultation today!
