1st offense, no prior record.
Criminal Defense Attorney
There is no average sentence that I know of, but there is a minimum prison sentence associated with this charge because the level of the offense is so high. First offense has no effect on the minimum prison sentence on a burg. of a dwelling w/ assault charge, this charge is punishable by up to 30 years in prison.
Contact a local attorney asap, this charge is FAR TOO SERIOUS....

It's actually punishable by life, though it is a first degree felony (normally a 30 year max). Definitely the kind of charge I would want a lawyer to help defend.
