What happens to a parent who lets an unlicensed child drive a car?

Question Details:

My mom was caught letting my 17 year old brother drive without a licence or permit. She was letting him drive because he was planning to get his license in a couple months when he turned 18. He was speeding almost 40 in a 25mile per hour zone. The cop gave my mom and my brother a court hearing. And my mom got a letter in the mail today saying that she has to get her fingerprints before the court hearing. I looked it up and I thought you only had to pay the fine. My mom doesn't have any criminal record or a driving ticket in the last 8 years. What will happen to my mom?
