What's the maximum penalty for a class c misdemeanor in Pennsylvania?

Asked about 2 years ago - Chambersburg, PA

I was sent a letter in the mail being charged with 3 traffic violations that i have to go to court for. I've never been to court before, What should I expect to happen? The paper says that they are class c misdemeanors.
