It depends.

However, what the judge will tell you at your first appearance is that under the worst case scenario - this being a class 1 misdemeanor - you could face a maximum of 120 days in jail. That's where the "depends" part of my answer comes into play; there are many factors that go into the ultimate outcome of any case. The best thing you can do is sit down with an attorney and discuss these factors.

Best wishes.
