    Answered . Two years in prison. Each count carries a maximum of 12 months. A good attorney can often make arguments that the maximum would not comply with the sentencing guidelines.

    Answered . The maximum sentence, by statute, is 12 months incarceration on each. The judge could run the sentences concurrent or consecutive. If consecutive, the sentence would be 24 months. You should hire a experienced criminal defense attorney who will be able to file a motion for discovery and assess the State's case. By doing so, they will be able to advise you accordingly.
