Probably a large fine and a $200 super speeder surcharge. You'd do well to talk to a lawyer. If you're under 21 you may also face a license suspension.
If you have a lawyer, you could probably have some of the charges reduced so that the effect on your license is minimal. If you just go in and pay the fine (which is what you would normally get for these charges) the points on your license will cause your insurance to go up significantly. If you are under 21, these points are enough to suspend your license. Try and find an attorney to walk you through this, as the money you will spend on an attorney will save you more in the long run that it would cost.
