You face up to 1 year in jail or 3 years probation and up to 90 days in jail. Further you can be fined up to 1000 dollars and you will have a criminal conviction.

If this is your first offense, getting a lawyer may very well stop your getting even a record. YOu ought to seek out a good lawyer who has experience handling criminal cases.

The money you spend for a lawyer is nothing compared to what you will save by not having a criminal record.

Good luck.

This is very difficult to say, overall since it is a first offense the likelihood of the DA wanting you to do any time would be close to non-existent. However, there may be a request of probation or community service.

It would be ideal that you not have to accept anything along the lines of probation even, on such a case.

MUCH LUCK. If you would like to further contact us regarding this, or any other case, you may contact us at or call us directly at 212.709.8303
