The top counts are A misdemeanors so you face 1 year in jail, 3 years probation, and a $1,000 fine.
I am a former federal and State prosecutor and have been doing criminal defense work for over 16 years. I was named to the Super Lawyers list as one of the top attorneys in New York for 2012 and 2013. No more than 5 percent of the lawyers in the state are selected by Super Lawyers. Martindale-Hubbell has given me its highest rating - AV Preeminent - in the areas of Criminal Law, Personal Injury, and Litigation. According to Martindale-Hubbell”AV Preeminent is a significant rating accomplishment - a testament to the fact that a lawyer's peers rank him or her at the highest level of professional excellence." Fewer than 8% of attorneys achieve an AV Preeminent rating. I also have the highest ranking – “superb” – on Avvo. Feel free to check out my web site and contact me.

Another outcome is you'll be adjourned a dozen times and decide you've had enough adjournments and you'll take a plea deal for some lesser charge. You may agree to a violation but there is no guarantee the prosecutor will offer a violation. If yes, then you'll be ACD'd, sent to a class program where you'll have to pay periodic tuition payments and pay a fine of several hundred dollars. This assumes this is your first offense.
