Given your brother's status as a felon, he could be looking at north of 8-10 years for the additional charges, without considering any potential violation of probation he may have been on. You need to contact a local attorney in order to gain a more specific estimation. They would be able to go to the arraignment and hear the specific charges and see the discovery and your brother's specific status. Good luck.

Thank you! Another question is how can I go about getting him help no one in the family has money and I really do not want the state to make him be the example I know that the PD will not do anything for him.

You have an unfortunate situation. Without money you will have to go with a public defender. This is not the end of the world. PDs are very competent attorneys and took the same bar as any private attorney. The only disadvantage is that they are massively overworked. Good luck.
