The most time you can get on a misdemeanor is 1 year. However if you hire an attorney you probably can get a no jail promise plea bargain and be sentenced to fine, community service, depending on all the details.

It is impossible to give you a firm answer because there are so many variables in such cases. How much was involved? What were the circumstances and lots more, including priors, etc. The best thing to do is hire an experienced criminal defense lawyer who practices in the courts in which you are charged and fight the matter strenuously. It's often amazing how a case can change when a strong defense is mounted against the charges. Good luck.

You could receive a sentence of 1 1/3 to 4 years in prison, or an alternate misdemeanor sentence of 1 year or less in a local jail, or straight probation with restitution. If it is your first offense you will almost always be placed on probation for 5 years on a felony plea and 1 year on a misdemeanor plea.
