^^^ This is also my take on the sentencing. The defendant will probably serve a maximum of 3 years.
When Are You Eligible for Parole in Texas?
3G or Aggravated Offenses
The second types of sentences are those which are referred to as “3G offenses”, we have another article on this website explaining in detail what that means. The designation of “3G” was named after an old provision of the Texas Code of Criminal Procedure which stated a person who committed certain violent or otherwise aggravated offenses, or displayed a weapon during the commission of the crime, had to serve at least one half (50%) of their actual sentence before they were even eligible to be considered for parole. This 50% of the sentence has to be done “flat time” or “day for day” with no allowance for good time credit to be applied. As an example, if a person was convicted of murder and received a twenty year sentence, then they would not be eligible to be considered for parole until they had actually served ten calendar years.
Amber Guyger, the former Dallas police officer who killed Botham Jean in his apartment last year, is heading to prison to begin a 10-year sentence. She will first be eligible for parole in five years.https://www.cbs58.com/news/ex-dallas-policewoman-amber-guyger-gets-10-years-in-prison-for-murder-of-botham-jean

where are those checks for whoring yourself on FOX?
Interesting you asked about her whoring herself out to FOX. I'm sure if she really wanted a private attorney, she could (how do I say this) work something out.

Jurors can consider the so-called castle doctrine in the murder trial of Amber Guyger
Jurors will be allowed to consider the so-called castle doctrine in the murder case against former Dallas police officer Amber Guyger, who said she mistakenly entered the wrong apartment and killed a 26-year-old man.
The castle doctrine is the legal notion that your home is your castle, and you have the right to use lethal force to defend your home and not retreat. A number of states have enshrined the castle doctrine in statutory law, sometimes with slightly different guidelines for when deadly force can be used. In other states, stand your ground measures extend self-defense protections to any place a person has a legal right to be, including their home.
Guyger, 31, was indicted on a murder charge after she killed Botham Jean, an accountant, in September 2018. Jurors, who began deliberating on Monday, were instructed to find whether Guyger is guilty of murder, manslaughter or neither.
Prosecutors objected to applying the castle doctrine because Guyger was in Jean's home -- not the other way around. But the judge allowed it and the defense leaned on it.
Guyger's defense attorneys argue it is reasonable that she thought she was in her home and that it's a mistake any ordinary person would make in such a situation.
Therefore, it's reasonable that she acted in self-defense, her attorneys argue. https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/us/jurors-can-consider-the-so-called-castle-doctrine-in-the-murder-trial-of-amber-guyger/ar-AAI5I3G

The Official Seal of the Republican Party

y04185, what is the source of the opinion in the lead post.
I think if Trump is impeached, his chances of reelection will decrease.

Swing-district Democrats gamble that voters will follow them on impeachment
Several House members in crucial swing districts rolled the dice this week by supporting an impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump, betting voters will eventually agree that such an inquiry is the best path forward.
The support from members whose victories helped flip the House from red to blue last year may have spurred Speaker Nancy Pelosi to apply the impeachment description Tuesday to ongoing investigations.
Yet Democratic strategists and lawmakers admit they do not yet know whether reports about Trump’s July conversation with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy — in which he allegedly asked Ukraine to investigate corruption claims that could damage former Vice President Joe Biden after holding up congressionally approved military aid to the country — have convinced more voters to favor impeachment.
. . .
So far this week, Slotkin and Luria have been joined in their new positions by moderate Democratic freshmen Dean Phillips of Minnesota, Chrissy Houlahan of Pennsylvania, Abigail Spanberger of Virginia, Mikie Sherrill of New Jersey, Haley Stevens of Michigan, Gil Cisneros of California, Jason Crow of Colorado, and Antonio Delgado of New York, among others.
Six of them — Slotkin, Luria, Spanberger, Sherrill, Stevens and Delgado — represent districts Trump won in 2016. https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/politics/swing-district-democrats-gamble-that-voters-will-follow-them-on-impeachment/ar-AAHP46M
A wave of moderate House Democrats are suddenly eager for an impeachment investigation
Democrats’ impeachment dam appears to be breaking.
By Ella Nilsenella.firstname.lastname@example.org Sep 24, 2019, 12:00pm EDT
The tide is shifting on impeaching the president within the House Democratic caucus — and fast.
A wave of moderate first-term Democrats from Trump-friendly districts, who up to this point have resisted liberal members’ calls for impeachment, got on board with an impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump late Monday night. Seven first-term Democrats from conservative districts penned a searing op-ed in the Washington Post calling for an inquiry. About two-thirds of the caucus now support an inquiry, and more are following.
So what changed their minds? New information has emerged about a whistleblower alleging the president made an inappropriate request of a foreign leader, multiple times. Subsequent reporting has revealed Trump allegedly urged Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden’s son Hunter Biden, presumably to dig up dirt on his political enemies, as Joe Biden is running for president. Trump has confirmed some of these details himself, but maintains he did nothing wrong.
“If these allegations are true, we believe these actions represent an impeachable offense,” Reps. Gil Cisneros (CA), Jason Crow (CO), Chrissy Houlahan (PA), Elaine Luria (VA), Mikie Sherrill (NJ), Elissa Slotkin (MI), and Abigail Spanberger (VA) wrote in the op-ed. As of Tuesday morning, nearly half of the 44 vulnerable first-term representatives who flipped Republican districts in 2018 came out in support of an impeachment inquiry.https://www.vox.com/policy-and-politics/2019/9/24/20881521/moderate-house-democrats-impeachment-investigation

5 of 5, or 4 of 5 does it matter?
YOUR republican party has now morphed into a CORRUPT CRIMINAL ENTERPRISE. And quite frankly YOU'RE corrupt for not for leaving that shithole organization. You know the saying, "lie down with dogs and you come up with fleas."
I don't think that the source that that reported all five have been proved to be liars. Just 'cause homeboy announced was declaring himself to be an independent doesnt' mean he change his party status on his actual voters registration. If he has not done that, then technically the sources aren't wrong.

They are not all Republicans. You should stop spreading lies.
Two sources have reported that the Warren County Board of Supervisors are all Reublicans. Those sources have cited n this thread. On the other hand, you have provided no proof whatsoever that they aren't all Republicanns.
But you are always so quick to call someone a lie.
Here is another source:
Among the 14 people charged were County Executive Douglas Stanley and all five members of the county’s Board of Supervisors: Chairman Daniel Murray, R-North River; Tony Carter, R-Happy Creek; Tom Sayre, R-Shenandoah; Archie Fox, R-Fork; and Linda Glavis, R-South River. Former Warren schools Superintendent Luke Drescher and former County Attorney Daniel Whitten also were charged.
The Rs stand for Republican.
All liberal sources. It would behoove you to look at the Board of Elections.
It would behoove you to post a credible source that shows that all five of the Board of Supervisors they are not Republican.
Are you seriously arguing that all three sources, including the Richmond News, just made it up?
I did find this article that said the Chairman recently declared himself to be an independent.
Board Chairman Murray makes political, state financial restitution waves
Published 3 weeks ago on September 3, 2019
Looking at the political atmosphere in this county and the disruptions in this county, I have done some soul searching. And it is very hard to be true and transparent and to consider myself a member of any one political party. So I would like to publicly announce that I’m independent,” Murray said during reports of board members, adding, “I do not vote a party line, I vote for what’s best for where I live. So that violates the party’s policies and procedures and being that I’m violating those I’m declaring myself an independent.”
Murray has been a Warren County Republican Committee member his entire term on the county board.
He won an unusual three-way race for the North River District seat on the Warren County Board of Supervisors in November 2011.https://royalexaminer.com/board-chairman-murray-makes-political-state-financial-restitution-waves/

All Republicans. The party of corruption.
That's a damn lie.
What's the lie?
The officials charged include five members of the Warren County Board of Supervisors, all Republicans: https://www.alternet.org/2019/09/entire-virginia-county-board-of-supervisors-indicted-as-part-of-corruption-probe/
Entire Republican county board indicted for $21 million embezzlement scheme outside Washington, DC
This week, Virginia State Police announced that a grand jury has indicted nearly over a dozen public officials in an alleged $21 million embezzlement scheme — including the entire Warren County Board of Supervisors.
The officials charged include Tony Carter, Tom Sayre, Archie Fox, Linda Glavis, and Chairman Daniel Murray. All five officials are Republicans.https://www.rawstory.com/2019/09/entire-republican-county-board-indicted-for-21-million-embezzlement-scheme-outside-washington-dc/
The part about the Republican party being the party of corruption is just opinionated politic rehtoric, like when you say Democrats don't care about Black people.

Knee grow please. What percentage of Blacks are Republicans. Only a fool would expect the same percentage of Black Republicans to get appointments. Obama did a piss poor job of making Black appointments.
If your president, Donald John Trump, nominated you to be a federal judge would you except? [accept]
Did I say what the percentage should be? No I did not. What I said was Trump is doing a poor job of appointing Black judges
I don't know how many qualified Black Judges are Republican. What I do know is that Trump has appointed at least 150 judges and only 6 of them are Black. I'll do the math for you. That is 4%.
You happy with that.
BTW, there is no law preventing Trump from appointing qualified democratic or independent Black Judges.
How do you figure Obama did a poor job of appointing Black Judges. Have you done any research or are you talking out our arse.
Obama's Legacy on Judicial Appointments, By the Numbers19 percent
of the president’s [Obama] confirmed judges have been African American, compared to 16 percent under President Bill Clinton and seven percent under President George W. Bush.https://www.nbcnews.com/storyline/president-obama-the-legacy/obama-s-legacy-judicial-appointments-numbers-n709306
So far, Trump is doing worse than George W. Bush.
Yes, I would accept (not "except")
a judgeship if Trump nominated me, and I was confirmed. I answered that question in my last post. I still don't understand the point of that question. What has that got to do with Trump doing a poor job of appointing Blacks.
And please tell us which Judge appointed by the previous completely undid Brown v. Education.
y04185, you gotta do better.
