nephew is in jail in Gensee/Flint. He is being charged with assault, & assault with a deadly weapon, & armed robbery. Prior charge while adult possession of cocaine & possession of precription drugs/pills.
I need to know guidelines, the minium & maxium of the charges he is faceing.
He has a court appointed lawyer, who we told to him to fire, because the lawyer said "he is screwed & your getting life" They have not even requested a line up!

Your nephew is facing Class A felony guidelines. His PV(previous record) should be in the 20's. His OV(offense variables) are hard to determine from the details you provided. Given what is known, a conviction could result in approximately 15 to life. Keep in mind that the court appointed attorney is required to follow your nephews instructions in regards to pleas, and whether or not to proceed to trial. If he is not happy with the response he is getting from his attorney, I would be more than happy to represent your nephew in his defense. If you have more questions, feel free to call, or email.
You should speak directly with a lawyer to walk you through the process of what you should do.
