I have a wife and three small children. My wife's grandfather was found guilty of smuggling drugs and was originally going to do 7 years but his sentence was reduced to 3-5 and he was out in 2(he's in his 70's). He was also deported to Mexico. This took place about 7 or 8 years ago. Shortly after he was deported, he returned illegally and is now wanting to spend time with my family.
So, how serious of an offense would warrant a 7 year sentence?
What kind of consequences could I face if he is discovered, and I associated with him knowing the situation?
I'm in California. Thanks
