Was the sentence too light for Lowe II?

Sidney Lowe II was sentenced to 15 months at the Guilford County Prison Farm on Tuesday by Judge Henry Frye Jr.

Was this too light of load for II who was facing 23 years and now he ends up with 15 months at the Guilford County Farm, which is a minimum security prison?

Sidney Lowe II was on trial for home invasion, drug possesion, firearms charges, and other assorted violations which at one time could have reached the status of kidnapping and attempted murder for what hapened on that Saturday afternoon at UNCG.

Would Lowe have received the minimum of at least three years on these charges, or time closer to the 23 years max, if his dad Sidney Lowe Sr. was not the basketball coach at N.C. State?
