This is a very serious offense. It is a 1st° felony and it has a level seven in severity. Although he is only 16, A crime like this can be transferred to adult court and he can face adult penalties. The minimum sentence would be 21 months in prison. The max could be 20 years.

Additionally there is a weapons enhancement. That could mean a minimum of 48 months in prison and a possible life sentence. Your grandson needs a lawyer.
