Any sentences handed to you will be at the discretion of the magistrate, within the guidelines. If you have been told that the maximum is 2 years, then it can be anything from no jail time up to the 2 year maximum. What a magistrate will take into account when determining the sentence is your mental illnesses at the time, whether it is a first time offence or more than one, family responsibilities and any changes that you have made to make the situation better. They will also look at any charges made against you since the time of the offence.
