You are facing up to a year in jail and a 4000 dollar fine. Your punishment should you plead guilty for the crime depends on the court, the complaining witness, if you caused any damage, the deal your defense attorney can negotiate and to many other factors that are impossible to forsee. Without priors you are not likely to serve time. I am sure there will be other alternatives presented to you by your defense attorney. Good luck.
