BREAKING: Verdict in Murder trial is in

17 years?

The jury gave her a seventeen (17) year sentence.

I do not know what amount of fine.

Since it is a 3(g) offense she will have to do at least 1/2 of the assessed time at TDCJ before she can be considered eligible for parole. So she will have to serve 81/2 years at a minimum.

I will not comment on the length of the sentence other than to say I was wrong in my prediction and that I hardly think it is a sufficient sentence considering the jury convicted her of murder.
