It depends. What crime is your husband charged with? If the charge has, for example, a 25 year minimum mandatory then that would be the minimum sentence even if the scoresheet is lower.
I agree with the previous attorney answer as many sentencing guidelines are fixed regardless of prior criminal history. You should have been able to see this from your husband's attorney at sentencing or before that date. But if you need help send me an email.
