Minimum of 2000 hours.

They could really be innocent. Unless they have video tape evidence they could be innocent. They probably aren't but they could be

They were convicted. They have to be sentenced. You don't sentence them according to whether they "might" be innocent. They were found guilty beyond a reasonable doubt. That's how the American criminal justice system works.

Just like the officers that beat Rodney King were found innocent beyond a reasonable doubt but it is what it is

You may not like the jury's verdict, but that is the verdict. I didn't like it when Casey Anthony was acquitted or when Jodi Arias' trial was hung, but that's how it went. Do you honestly believe there was no conspiracy? There was 7 months' worth of painstaking statistical evidence that showed that the chances of these scores rising the way they did was one in a QUADRILLION. I call that beyond a reasonable doubt.

All Im saying is I think they are guilty but they have a right to not take the plea if they truly think they are innocent.

They do indeed and they did. I'm just saying that I think they're going to live to regret it. He gave them every opportunity for a more lenient sentence. They just had to take responsibility, but they won't.

If they truly think they are innocent maybe they can plea insanity on appeal.

Its really unbelievable that they didn't take a deal. What were they thinking?

For the one that did take the deal, what were the terms? 5 yrs probation?

He's got to go to jail every weekend for six months, pay a fine (can't remember how much), do 1500 hours of community service, and he had to waive his right to appeal. He also had to admit wrongdoing.
