Hello
This is Samuel. I will discuss this and provide you information in this regard.
For a first offense, if convicted, the POSSIBLE penalty in SD carries a max 1 year in jail and up to $1,000 fine with a license suspension.

Many times, however, on a plea agreement the state will allow a probation instead of jail with community service and substance abuse classes. I suggest you can consult with the Public Defender in the county where this happened to see if you qualify to have representation. Otherwise, it would beneficial for you to consider a consultation with a local SD attorney who may be able to work out a plea arrangement in your best interest.
