Answered 01/06/2011: There are many factors involved in calculating the likely jail time from conviction of these 3 charges. Typically a person would consult the Virginia sentencing guidelines. The max for them has very little to do with what you might ultimately get if convicted. I would suggest contacting a criminal defense lawyer for help on defense of the charges and questions about the likely sentence. But since you asked, here are the maximums for each.
1. Robbery - Virginia Code 18.2-58 carries 5 yrs to life
2. Conspiracy to Commit Robbery - Virginia Code 18.2-22 (a)(2) is a class 5 felony with a term of imprisonment of not less than one year nor more than 10 years, or in the discretion of the jury or the court trying the case without a jury, confinement in jail for not more than 12 months and a fine of not more than $2,500, either or both.
3. Assault by Mob - Virginia Code 18.2-42 has a possible 1 year (6 months when calculating the time as a misdemeanor).
They could all run consecutive or concurrent, if the judge wanted to do it. Good Luck with this.
