    Lawyers agree

    Answered . I can't tell from your description what level of offense(s) you are charged with. At least a state jail. And maybe also a third degree? The maximum punishment on a state jail is two years in the state jail. The maximum punishment on a third degree is ten years in prison. This does not mean these will be your sentences. Whether or not you enter a plea bargain or your case should be resolved another way is something your attorney will be able to discuss with you after reviewing th state's evidence.
