Displaying fictitious license plates is a Class 2 Misdemeanor Traffic Offense punishable by 10 days to 90 days in jail and a fine of $150 to $300 plus court costs and community service. You could also get probation.
Assuming there was just a mistake as to he license plates then this is the type of case that the prosecutor isn't going to get too upset about and if you get a lawyer then there is a good chance they can get a deferred adjudication or a pretrial diversion which will keep it off of your record.
Of course, a lot depends on the judge and some judges are much, much tougher to deal with than the others. If you go to hire a lawyer they can tell you what your chances are with that judge and at that point you can make a decision on whether it is a worthwhile investment of your money.
If you don't have a lawyer then you can find one by going to www.lawyers.com and in the section for Area of Practice enter "Criminal Law" or Traffic Law". Traffic Law is really a type of criminal law but usually attorneys who advertise that specialty spend more time inth e traffic courts.
