Varsayılan Maritime law and vehicle law


I'd appreciate some legal advice, specifically the likelihood of receiving the full penalty for causing pollution with gray water. I understand the penalty is between 6 months and 2 years in prison for emptying bilge tanks in a harbour/marina (negligently or intentionally) even for a small 9 metre wooden boat.
I have yet to seek legal representation but I have been informed that I will be prosecuted and a case has been opened against me. Is it possible (in Turkish law) for the sentence to be suspended? And if so, could a monetary fine be imposed in it's place? What (if any) is the likely amount?

Also, I am a foreign resident currently driving a Turkish plate car, not yet registered in my name. My Turkish friends have told me not to worry about it, but I'd like to know what my responsibilitie are and if I am currently breaking any law by driving a Turkish plate instead of an MD plate.

Thank you for any help,
