A: California Penal Code section 25800 as a felony has a range of punishment from 16 months on the low term to 36 months on the high term. However, it is also what's known as a "wobbler" meaning that it can be alternatively charged as a misdemeanor with a maximum punishment of no more than 1 year in the county jail.

A: this is very sketchy info.

it is like calling a doctor and suggesting symptoms and asking what is wrong and can he be cured?

a lawyer needs an accurate summary of facts to evaluate.........it is important to not only hear what the defense has to say but to review the DA's case file and set what wits say............and look at prior record.
