my friend has 2 misdemeanor convictions and is serving weekend jail time, he lost his job due to the arrest and cannot find work due to his background. Contrary to what it seems, he is very responsible and reliable. His first arrest was because of his ex who was a drug abusing mess (he has full custody of their son) and his second arrest was due to an altercation when he confronted someone stealing from his former business that he part owned. He is close to 50 and these are the only 2 times that he has ever been in trouble with the law. He has an excellent work ethic and work history.

The subject penalties may be based on a myriad of reasons. Many factors such as age, prosecutor discretion, what judge you have, whether witnesses are credible all matter and that makes it near impossible to say what "the outcome will be."Many people post questions here asking about their chances in court. No one online can validly predict what the future holds.
