- A second conviction is a first degree misdemeanor punishable by up to one year in the county jail.

If you are convicted, it is possible that you can be court ordered to stay away from certain geographic areas. If you live or work in the area, you may have to register and get permission from the court to go to work, school or home. The Court may also order you to undergo medical testing.
