What's the common penalty for first time, leaving children in a car in Nebraska.

Lincoln, NE |

My wife left our two kids, 7 and 3, in a car while she was in a store. she was given a ticket for Child Negligence. The max penalty is 3mos and $500. In situations like this, as a first time offender, would we expect that she'll serve jail time or is a fine more likely?
