It's anybody's guess at this point how a judge might rule on a motion to suppress or how a jewelry might find the evidence. Ultimately, sentencing depends on whether you are found guilty, your prior record, how serious these are in the court's eyes, mitigation, and allocution. An attorney can assist you with evaluating the prosecution's case, any defenses that you might have, and any plea offer that might be made, so that you can decide whether to plea bargain or go to trial. If you were to be found guilty, then an attorney can assist you with presenting mitigation, allocution, and a recommendation for a more lenient sentence. and a recommendation for a more lenient sentence.

The penalty for this is entirely up to the discretion of the prosecutor handling the case, or if you are found guilty after a trial, to the judge presiding over the trial.
