If it's an attempted aggravated murder -- which is what it sounds like -- the defendant would face a minimum sentence of at least 20 years in jail up to 40 years in jail, and a maximum sentence of life in prison under the New York Penal Code. But an attempted Class A-1 felony such as murder may have be be subject to many considerations -- such as whether the Defendant has a prior criminal history, whether he's a persistent felony offender, whether conspiracy claims can be sustained, etc.
