The minimum sentence would be basically time served and she's free to go. That's not likely to happen. There are often many factors that go into determining what a sentence might be or even what the maximum sentence might be so we can not really give any meaningful answer in a limited forum like this. Suffice to say she needs the best criminal defense attorney she can afford and after reviewing her specific circumstances i n detail, the attorney can likely give her a good idea of what her options are and what she is possibly / realistically looking at sentencing wise. Best of luck.
