The sentence imposed will depend on the facts of the case as well as your mitigation and antecedents, if any. Assuming that there are no aggravating factors, the sentence for a first time offender (except for maid abuse cases) tends to be a fine. For more severe offences (e.g. involving the use of weapons), a custodial sentence is usually imposed. See Penal Code, ss 323-324.
