If your boyfriend is charged in federal court the mandatory minimum penalty for 50 grams of pure meth or 500 grams of a mixture containing meth is 10 years in prison. The maximum is life. If death or serious bodily injury resulted from the use of the meth the minimum is 20 years.

I do not know, it depends on many factors in Oregon. He should ask his defense counsel, that is what his defense counsel is for.

Ultimately, it likely will matter little, because, if you meant undocumented when you said "hes illegal" then he will almost certainly be deported once he is released from incarceration. He could speak to an immigration attorney about that, but I would not get my hopes up about that aspect of his situation.
