How much time can he get?

Q: In Pennsylvania, what is the maximum penalty for an F3 and M1 violation? (Baldwin Borough, PA)

A: A defendant is normally not sentenced to the statutory maximum. A judge follows the PA Sentencing Guidelines when invoking a sentence. The “guidelines” are a complex matrix based on Prior Records Score and Offense Gravity Score. To answer your question however, A F3 is punishable by 7 years in jail and/or $15,000 fine. M1 is punishable by 5 years in jail and/or $10000 fine.
