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

No judge squashed that last night

it was a stupid thing to do though.
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.

If he gets the standard sentence, 12 years or so, he probably won't appeal. He was prepared to plea bargain for 10 years. I am hoping he is found guilty on all counts and gets a top end of the sentencing guidelines.

Judge is in court now.

Good news - what is the Blakely challenge or whatever it so that the defence have requested. The judge just mentioned it.

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.

Aggravating factors will allow the judge to go to the higher end of the scale of sentencing. Maximum 20 years I believe.
