What are the penalties if I am convicted of a crime or a traffic offense in State Court?

If you are convicted of a crime, the court can sentence you to time in jail or on probation, and/ or order you to pay a fine. For certain offenses, the court may be able to impose other sentences.

In misdemeanor cases the sentence might include a fine up to $1,000, 12 months of confinement, or both. The judge can also order probation. Aggravated circumstances may result in higher fines.

If you are convicted of a traffic offense, the court can limit or revoke your driving privileges, or order you to pay a fine, or both. You should contact the Department of Driver Services to get more information regarding the status of your license.
