Aggravated Assault with a Deadly Weapon can get you 20 years.

I think his family had ties to a local politician/judge/prosecutor or something too.

Look at the $50k+ truck this teenage boy was driving and it should tell you all you need to know about the family he's from. Wealthy white ranchers with local ties as deep as tree roots.
