A: Offenders found guilty of Class “B” misdemeanors face maximum penalties of up to three months imprisonment or one year probation. In addition, a fine of up to five hundred dollars or double the amount of the defendant’s gain from the commission of the crime may be imposed.

For first time offenders, courts do not generally impose the maximum sentence, absent extraordinary circumstances.
