If your brother is found guilty he will be facing no more then 20 years but no less then 2 years. He may also be punished with a fine that will not exceed 10,000. Sorry about your brother and good luck.

In Texas the penalties are usually 2-10 years. Depending on the actual crime, this can vary greatly. If murder, he will definitely spend at least 7 years in prison. One of the biggest factors in deciding how the punishment is handed down is the accused prior record. There are also hefty fines that can be handed down.

The judge will rule his/her sentence based on Texas Pinal Code section 12.33. This law states two penalties: 1) a person convicted for a second degree felony will be imprisoned for not less than two years and not more than twenty years. Also, 2) a fine will be issued not to exceed $10,000.00.
