The potential maximum is 1 year but with no record it is extraordinarily unlikely you would do any jail time. Make sure you appear in court with an attorney and they will be able to review the case and discuss a favorable disposition with the prosecutor. Depending on the circumstances and the view of the complainant, you may be able to get it reduced to a non-criminal offense or possibly even dismissed.
You face up to one year in jail. The actual offer will be less but depends on the facts and the policies of the local DA’s Office.

Any response I provide is meant as a general view on the subject and is no way intended to be specific legal advice to any individual. If you wish specific advice, you should hire and consult with an attorney of your choosing.
If you were to be found guilty of this crime the maximum sentence is one year in jail. What you actual sentence would be depends on a variety of factors including your cooperation with the court (besides violating the Court's initial order), your employment history and other mitigating factors. While not always avoidable your best defnese is to avoid being found guilty in the first place and for that you will need experienced and aggressive attorneys to represent you in and out of court. Also, be sure not to break the restraining order a second time.
