A prison sentence or probation term will depend on your prior record. Without knowing that record, no attorney can tell you what your punishment will be. The maximum for jail or probation is two years. However, this lengthy sentence is reserved for defendants with extensive records.

If you have no prior record, you may be eligible for a first time offenders program known as ARD. Under the program, you are placed on probation and if you comply with the requirements, the charges are dismissed and you can have the case expunged. It is important that you retain a criminal defense attorney to consider all of your options.
