Call the Family Court, give the Number on the Form, tell them your son is pleading Not Guilty and ask for a Court hearing date.
The penalty is in the discretion of the Judge and the judge realizes the penalty is is very high; On the books, the law states that the penalty rangesfrom a fine of between $100 and $500 and 90 days in jail to performing 40 hours of community service.
In the cases I researched for you a first time offender breaking curfew has gotten a strong reprimand and ordered to perform between 20 and 40 Hours of community service in some cases, the Judge extended the time that the minor remained with a restricted license.
Take with you to Court: Bring letters from his teachers, any athletic coaches, etc. attesting to his upstanding character. He should be fine!
