Thank you The crime is a misdemeanor. And I suggest that because he is a minor, and if this is his first offense, then there would not be any type of juvenile detention.
I suggest that the penalty is up to 1 year in jail but because he is a minor there would more than likely be a probation and a fine
The fine will not exceed $1000
I suggest that you will want to consult with a local attorney and if you cannot afford a private attorney, then reach out to the Public Defender
I suggest that because your son is young, you would want to see if the local attorney or Public Defender can work with the District Attorney to have it removed from his record at the end of his probatio
You're welcome and good luck
