Sentences don’t necessarily mean that you will get imprisoned in jail. Depending on the findings of the court and the decision of the judge, an accused person can receive a variety of sentences, not all necessarily resulting in a criminal record.

The different sentences that can be served, depending on the type of offense and its gravity, are as follows: Discharge (Absolute or Conditional), Suspended Sentence, Probation, Restitution, Fine, Conditional Sentence, Intermittent Sentence, and Custodial Sentence.
