    Minimum sentence?

    My brother in-law and father in-law recently got into a fight which led to my brother in-law being stabbed by my father in-law 3 times and being severely beaten. He survived and is still in the hospital recovering but now has permanent damage to his arm and face. I am wondering what the minimum sentence this man might get for what he did. This occurred in Michigan.
