    It will be according to the occurrence.

    Most misdemeanor sentencing is up to 1 year in the county jail for each count and fine up to $5,000 depending on the state.

    Felony convictions are generally sentenced to State Prison.

    At the time of occurance. If they change the laws tomorrow, it won't affect you sentence today.
