Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Suspended Imposition of Sentence may be considered both a conviction and a non-conviction depending on the location.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Suspended Imposition of Sentence (SIS) is a legal term that refers to a sentence that is given but not immediately enforced. In some jurisdictions, SIS is considered a conviction because the defendant has been found guilty of a crime. However, in other jurisdictions, SIS is not considered a conviction because the defendant does not serve any jail time or face other immediate consequences. Therefore, whether SIS is considered a conviction or not depends on the specific laws and practices of the location in question.

      True
