a class 1 misdemeanor carries possible penalites of up to $2,500 fine and six months in jail -


if a first offense, you could get a suspended sentence with one year supervised probation, half or less of the fine and court costs.

what would be the easiest way to settle this what would i expect
Expert:  Samuel II replied 8 years ago.



the easiest way is to consult with a local lawyer and have them negoiate with the state's attorney, if you are guilty - if you are not guilty then you dont want to take a plea.


if you plan on negoiating it yourself, you will need to file your appearance in the matter as pro se or the DA will not speak with you - of course, whenever there is a possibility of jail time a lawyer should represent you.
