He has a ready made appeal after a senator called for a guilty verdict, stupid cow. They deliberated for only about 10 hours so it's a guilty verdict
I am not sure that is the case Zorro. The discussion was around calling a mistrial. I think he will be able to mount an appeal.No judge squashed that last night
it was a stupid thing to do though.
the blakely waiver is Chauvin agreeing to allow the judge to decide aggravating factors. The judge gave 1 week for written motions on aggravating factors. He will respond a week after that, when there will likely be a hearing. Sentancing 6 weeks after that.Good news - what is the Blakely challenge or whatever it so that the defence have requested. The judge just mentioned it.
