The Court will decide what punishment is appropriate. A Lawyer should try to keep his client out of jail and in some jurisdictions can avoid a permanent conviction.

Sentencing may be simple. For example, the Court may accept the sanction to which the parties have agreed by a plea bargain. Probation, Community Control (House Arrest), County Jail, State Prison, Federal Prison are all possibilities.

Sentencing can also be quite complex entailing the application of a mathematical formula called the Sentencing Guidelines. The Court may depart or adjust the Sentence based upon aggravating or mitigating reasons. A lawyer should render an in depth analysis of this process. An experienced lawyer might have a potential sentence reduced by months or even many years.
