That depends on a lot: Under Maryland and federal law you might get 20y in prison, if you do not have a prior conviction. If you have a prior conviction, then under Maryland law the maximum becomes 40y and the mandatory minimum is ten. Under federal law the maximum becomes 30y. If you have two prior convictions, then under Maryland law the mandatory minimum increases to 25y. If you have three prior convictions, then under Maryland law the mandatory sentence is 40 years.
