Whether you will serve time is anybody's guess at this point. Sentencing depends on a lot of variables. An experienced criminal defense attorney can help you evaluate 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 go to trial. Consider seeking a confidential consultation.

Jail should be the least of your concerns. You are being charged with a crime of moral turpitude, and if convicted you can kiss your career aspirations goodbye.

Possibly. It depends on the amounts, all the facts, the judge, your lawyer, and the prosecutor.
