The habitual enhancement will turn a 3rd degree felony into a first degree felony. So he will go from an exposure of upto 10 years to an exposure of up to 99 years. It is possible to negotiate away the habitual enhancement (especially pre-indictment). So get an experienced criminal defense attorney retained pronto and focus on minimizing his exposure especially if he does not have any legal or factual basis to build a strong defense strategy upon.
