The charge is categorized as a sped restriction, and s a misdemeanor. The statute allows, on a first conviction, for the court to impose a fine in the amount of five hundred dollars ($500) and imprisonment for a period of not less than five days nor more than 90 days, provided that the sentence of imprisonment shall be suspended and, in lieu thereof, the person shall serve 30 days probation. So if they do impose any jail time they will suspend it and impose a 30 day probation on you. Since it is misdemeanor you should consider hiring an attorney to try and have the charge dropped to a moving violation. Most people do not want a misdemeanor on their record, even a low level one such as this. So, as charged you probably will be placed on probation and have to pay a fine. Seriously consider hiring an attorney to appear in court for you.
No, most likely no jail, just a probation, you will have to pay the $500.00,but you can try and have the charge dropped to a lesser charge and there would be no jail or probation. The judge can also just impose a fine and no jail time, but there is no bond or sponsor to avoid the charges for this offense.
Yes, unless the judge agrees to impose a lesser sentence or no sentence. That's why you should go with an attorney to handle the negotiations with the prosecutor, its really in your best interest.
