US Law question...

I'm not even sure if this falls in the acceptable for this comm, but the information is going in an SGA story and all the other help places have really specific points to cover. Anyway, my question:

What is the prison term in the USA for 2 counts of attempted murder? It's a civillian on Atlantis doing research, but he tried to kill someone very important (twice).

Thanks.

Months, perhaps, rather than years? Or maybe the numbers refer to some mysterious "level" on a sentencing guidelines chart?
