Verdict in on Guilt/Innocence

The jury has just come back in the Amanda Bitner trial and found her guilty on all four counts of injury to a child with findings of a deadly weapon in each count.

These are first-degree felony offenses and carry a range of punishment from 5 to 99 years or life for each count.

The deadly weapon findings means she would have to serve 1/2 of the sentence before she would be considered eligible for parole.

The jury could grant probation if she were sentenced to 10 years or less. However i predict the sentences assessed will be much longer.
