  1. 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.

    The responses of Attorney Chris Beck to any questions posed on Avvo do NOT establish an Attorney-client relationship. Attorney Beck is available for private hire and consultation for a fee. Only after Attorney Beck is retained as counsel, or agrees to discuss this matter with you privately, shall he be legally deemed to be your Attorney. His responses herein are an attempt to assist persons temporarily based upon the very extremely limited amount of information provided by the questioner


  2. 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.
