    Answered . It depends on how they charge it. If they charge it as a class 3 felony - potential is 4 - 12 years. If they charge it as a class 4 felony, potential is 2-6 years. There are some cases on whether the sentence should be aggravated and worse or not. However, I think that the consensus now is that it should not be aggravated.
