This is frustrating. I am of the view that you will most probably look at a suspended sentence with a fine of community service.
The problem is that the system can cost you a lot of money as you already saw. My view on this is that it should be discussed with you legal representative to negotiate a plea bargain with the prosecutor. This instruction you will have to give to your attorney, otherwise he would not do it.
The problem is that future postponements are not excluded and cost you even more money, I therefore have understanding for your view.
The key is however to discuss and come to an agreement with the prosecutor, as the deal have to come from both sides as they will also come to the party with a much reduced sentence.
I doubt strongly whether you will look at anything more than a suspended sentence.
I trust this helps.
