I hate to open this general topic...but I haven't seen this specific question addressed.

Are there sentencing guidelines for violation of V&T section 397 ("mobile scanners")?

I know the law calls for a penality of up to 6 months in jail...has that ever really happened? My limited understanding is that most laws contain the maximum sentence and first offenders usually see much less.

Has anyone ever been arrested and taken "downtown" and booked or had to post bail...or is a ticket the normal course?

I'm not asking because of any specific incident...just curious.

I had a friend get a ticket for having a hand-held in his car. When he went to court he said he was on the way to Radio Shack to have it fixed. The Judge dismissed the charge and he order the police to return his scanner...Ray
