    If convicted, the actual sentence is at the discretion of a judge however, the max he can receive is up to 30 days jail and up to a $750 fine. Likely to be significantly less than the max unless he has priors. He probably will want to consult with an attorney (free) especially if there are legal issues as to why the police were there or whether they were there with a warrant or invited in.
