A: With this being regular robbery (without a deadly weapon), the max time that you are looking at is 15 years in MDOC custody. The bad thing, though, is that robbery, even without a deadly weapon, is considered a violent crime, which means that whatever sentence you get would be a day-for-day sentence (not eligible for any sort of early release). Your best bet is going to be to get with an attorney ASAP to discuss the facts and circumstances of the case, what defenses you may have, etc.
