We thank you for sharing your information, you've got a lot going on. The lawyer that is handling his plea agreement would know what the negotiation range is. On it's face, 25 to life seems high unless there is more to his criminal history than this. If he is considered a low-risk inmate, he could do time in the camp which is not hard time. It's just dealing with a lot of boredom. Good luck
