A misdemeanor means that jail time is possible. The chance of jail time depends on the facts of each case. Yes there are mandatory fines. You should consult with an attorney.

The only misdemeanor listed is Vehicle Code §12500, driving without a license. You can reduce the chance of serving jail time if you get a valid license before your court date.
The other offenses -- running a red light, and failing to wear a seat belt and provide a child car seat -- are infractions that are only punishable by a fine, not jail.
