Chauvin sentencing in 8 weeks. What will he actually serve?

Hypothetically, the judge could say 75 year, but I'm thinking more like 5.

Put him in general population, and he will only last a week or two

Protective Custody. Also referred to as “Punk City”[@1088262,independentone]

[@809608,SevIsPamprinYouAlways] Thanks, but isn't that more costly to the taxpayers? Is Chauvin even worth the extra cost?
SevIsPamprinYouAlways · 51-55, F
No, it’s the same cost to house and feed him as it would be in general population. He gets no special privileges, and celling alone, while not something that can really be done in gen pop, is an accommodation built into segregation, the area in which protective custody is housed, for the very purpose of protecting inmates who will almost certainly be killed if they are not housed there.

The judge seemed to be on Chauvin's side the entire time, so I'd say he'll get off with a few years. Regardless of his sentence, I think the only way he's leaving prison is in a body bag once they find out his background.

See my reply above. This won’t be happening:

He’ll go into protective custody, which in the maximum security facility I work at is a 23 and 1 lockup deal-23 hours in your cell (which he inhabit alone), and 1 out for shower and a caged in red area about the size of a very small classroom.

[@809608,SevIsPamprinYouAlways] Sad but true.
So if he gets a light sentence will that give BLM another excuse to loot?
[@1201381,ShadowfireTheSarcastic] Nothing says justice like looting the local Target! 😂
Oh Target isn’t good enough? My oh my those looters sure are picky! [@1201381,ShadowfireTheSarcastic]

Omg you're in your 40s, Shadowfire? Now this rivalry feels lame,not that you weren't already lame xD
[@1201398,Rolexeo] Yeah, I wasn't always such a law-abiding guy. But yeah. Just so everybody else knows, that was Rolexeo's deal. He treated everybody like idiots, and blocked anybody who had a problem with it.
Rolexeo · 26-30, M
[@1201381,ShadowfireTheSarcastic] I never blocked you, also I bantered with everyone. I didnt legit hate anyone

He will most likely serve 12 years? With all charges to be served concurrently because it was 1 incident
Eternity · 22-25, M
The judge will be as lenient as he can possibly be of course. To be expected.
MarkPaul · 22-25, M
[@807598,Eternity] Wrong.
Eddiesolds · 56-60, M
8 weeks is way too long. It should be now. I dont think he will last in there.i hope he rots in there
RogueLoner · M
Or they could give him a sentence to 'satisfy' and put him in a witness protection program. Call it solitary confinement and refuse to give the media any access to "see" him. I don't trust anything dealing with any branch of government, including judicial.
[@609293,RogueLoner] Oh, no doubt the whole system needs retooling.
Picklebobble2 · 56-60, M
Guilty on all charges ?

They'll make an example of him.
Picklebobble2 · 56-60, M
[@8638,MarkPaul] Of course they will. Nobody wants any kind of response from groups in Minneapolis so the simplest thing to do is make an example of him.
That gets the media off their back and then he can bargain it down away from the media spotlight
MarkPaul · 22-25, M
[@448576,Picklebobble2] There are guidelines to follow. It's not simply a matter of an arbitrary decision to appeal to social media and make an example. The sentence will be somewhere in the middle... 12 to 15 years... in that neighbourhood. Final answer.
Picklebobble2 · 56-60, M
[@8638,MarkPaul] Well i bow to your obviously better 'knowledge' then
LetsGoBrandon · 31-35, M
The Judge told him he will have a chance for another trial. I don't know where these Juries came from. They don't seem like normal citizens
spjennifer · 56-60, T
I'd say they will go 5-7 years on each verdict, possibly 15-18 years, hopefully it's consecutive and not concurrent.
Yhe sentences will be concurrent so a maximum of 40 years

Guilty of all 3 counts he is looking at a high sentence
MarkPaul · 22-25, M
It will be in the neighbourhood of 12 to 15 years... 17 on the very top end.
Coralmist · 36-40, F
I think 20 years or 25..but will do 10 with good behavior
Cierzo · M
8 weeks? Sounds like a fair sentence to me.
Toepatrol · 26-30, M
Maybe 8-10 for good behaviour
MarkPaul · 22-25, M
[@645510,Longpatrol] Possibly.
MarkPaul · 22-25, M
