A third degree offense carries a sentence of 3-5 years in prison and a fine of up to $15,000. Thus, this is a serious issue.


However, if this is your first offense ever, it is possible that you can avoid jail time and instead take probation, get a deferred sentence or some other diversion option instead of jail. I would highly recommend that you consult an attorney to help reach a deal with the prosecutor to keep you out of jail.
