asault with a deadly weapon,inflicting serious injury
My boy friend was charged with this crime, and is going to have a hard time proving his case.because the witnesses that saw the crime were friends of the vitim,which was paralized by the incident.
We hired a P.I. and have an attorney that I hope is really trying to help.
The question is: what is the min& max charge for this crime. Will there be a chance for parole.
I want to learn as much as possible about this crime.

Re: asault with a deadly weapon,inflicting serious injury
AWDWISI charge question. You cannot know the minimum sentence length in months
or the max unless you also know the man's prior record level. After
you know what crimes he has been convicted of in the past then you
count the number of points to get prior record level
sentencing. You may find that the State will argue
that the crime should be sentenced in the aggravated level due to
serious resulting personal injury. If there are drugs and
alcohol involved the judge may tend to aggravate the sentencing.
Parole question. All offenders committed to Dept of Corrections are paroled. If your question is
will he get out early, generally expect he will serve 80% of
any active sentence. If he does a lawful job one can argue for work release
while in the DOC. There will likely be a very large reimbursement
ordered to the victim for injuries not covered by insurance.
