The maximum sentence one can receive for any charge in Virginia has nothing to do with a prior record. By statute, the punishment for a Class 5 felony is 1-10 years. Any actual sentence for your charges will certainly take into account your prior record as well as many other factors. The individual should definitely speak to a defense attorney, if they do not already have legal representation.

Good luck.
