Sentencing in criminal cases depends on a number of factors, the main one being what sort of prior convictions you have. The sentence will also vary depending on whether you take a guilty plea.
Yes, this is certainly something you need to retain a lawyer for. I would suggest that you not give any statements to the police and that you retain a lawyer as soon as possible. If you cannot afford an attorney, you should contact the public defender's office to see if you qualify for free legal assistance.
If you would like to retain a lawyer to handle this, please feel free to contact me.
