Half true. He faces between probation / credit timed serve - 14 years. In the penal code it doesn't allow for a conviction for gun enhancement under involuntary manslaughter. I wouldn't be surprised if the gun enhancement is thrown out. Article should mention sentencing was pushed back so both sides can look into the gun enhancement issue in more detail. I bet he gets about 3 years.
