As I know penalties can vary, what are some of the penalties that can apply to this violation. I am not guilty, can I plead this without an attorney. Your help is greatly appreciated.

Criminal Lawyer: Law Educator, Esq., Lawyer replied 8 years ago
You can get a fine from $0 to $500 and jail up to 1 year in jail depending on the seriousness of the offense. You can seek to enter into a plea deal for a municipal offense which can later be expunged and does not count as a misdemeanor or felony, but you should not enter any deal without at least getting an attorney to assist you and to review the deal.
