Hello,This offense is classified as a petty misdemeanor under Minnesota law. Upon conviction, it appears to carry a fine of $40, or $118 including court costs. He would not be entitled to a jury trial if he chooses to contest the charge - instead, the judge would determine his guilt or innocence. No jail time would be involved. The parking violation should not have any affect on the penalty in this case since it is not a moving violation.Hope this helps!
