Illegal Reentry after a prior deportation for an aggravated felony. How much prison time?

#1
Hello, this is an immigration question:
My son was deported from the US on 2012 after serving a 7 year sentence for residential burglary charges and receiving stolen property. He has a daughter back in the US so he entered the US and was arrested by immigration about a week ago. I think that for what I have read he will be charged with illegal reentry after being deported once for aggravated felony charges. He is prepared to do some time, but I am an old man afraid and I do not have much time left. How much time will he be getting, how is this sentencing calculated (I rode that they use some point system)?
Thanks.

Based on a A free U.S. Federal Sentencing Guidelines calculator I found using google, I would guess he'll get 18 to 24 months. I had to guess at most of the options.

To access the free U.S. Federal Sentencing Guidelines calculator that you mention, you need to be a lawyer or I could do it myself? If I can do it my self, please send me the link, t would be much appreciated. If not, how could I do to get it precisely?
Thank you in advance.

I just googled "A free U.S. Federal Sentencing Guidelines calculator" and chose the first response.

Do they sentence as per calculation or not fighting the case gives some leverage?

Yes, that sounds correct. Well is life and no matter what we have to look at things with the best eyes as possible.
I wish every one that has contributed to this thread the best. Thank you so much for your contribution and for helping me on these difficult moments.
I hope this thread can give some light to others as well.

There's no doubt he'll be deported, and is not entitled to an attorney for the removal proceedings. OP was asking about criminal charges for re-entry. Most aliens charged with re-entry get court appointed lawyers.
Only if ICE lets them go through that. I know people who work Federal Defense and they don't always get counsel nor do they get it quickly even if facing charges on a state level.
