That depends largely on the country, who is in control at the time, and what the person did. Possible penalties in Communist countries are the same as in many others (including the United States), ranging from a slap on the wrist, to civil penalties, prison and death.

Communist countries are not necessarily totalitarian. Communism is a form of government, not a guarantee of bad treatment -- although it is usually a guarantee of bad government, since it has not yet been successful over time.
