    When faced with the fear of being sent to jail

    When faced with the fear of being sent to jail, criminals will sometimes offer evidence that will incriminate their associates.

    Look at this sentence. I think we should use "facing" instead of "faced". Am I right?

    You could use 'facing' instead of 'faced with', but it's fine as is.

    You cannot use "facing with the fear".

    I got the point. We can use "facing" without the preposition "with".

    Thank you.
