A: What you are being charged with is a state jail level felony, so it is a serious charge. This doesn't mean that you will definitely do time, however. There are many factors that will be considered, including your lack of criminal history and the facts of the actual case. If y ou do not like the deals that the state is offering you, you also have tho opportunity to take it to trial and make them prove their case against you. The best thing for you to do right now is contact a criminal dense attorney to discuss the specifics. Good luck.
