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.
