Not pre-meditated(1st)...???He kicked in her door and beat her to a pulp...sent her an e-mail which he stated a week before "I should have killed you"!!! The court room seems to be a place where regular citizens become swayed by handsome/pretty defendants that up is down and down is up!!

The jury was off Saturday, Sunday and Monday (President's Day.) Three days and of course advised not to discuss the case.

It goes into the sentencing phase now but the judge makes the final decision no matter what the jury decides. A sad case both of them so young and talented and their whole life was ahead of them. He could walk with time served depending on the what the judge decides or walk in five years and she is gone forever.
The fact that he could walk in five years restores your faith in the jury system??? Something is really wrong with our system that this animal will walk free at all let alone in as little as 5 years!

They didn't find him NOT GUILTY on all counts!!! He is a felon for the rest of his life. Yes, he should be put away for life with no parole but at least this jury didn't let him walk out the door today.

It all depends upon the judge now ... he could walk out with time served. No matter what the jury decides in the sentencing phase it's up to the judge in Virginia. At least they found him guilty of something. Yes it sucks meager as it is the jury did bring back a guilty verdict.

I am pro death penalty ... kill 'em all ... but we have bleeding heart jurors that don't think like me.

Sad thing is that he's a Nathan look-a-like (from One Tree Hill). My bet is that he gets tons of marriage proposals whil in jail. For some odd reason...lots of women find the good-looking bad boys irresistible. That Kennedy cousin, The Preppy Killer, Scott Peterson...all received tons of love letters while in jail for heinous crimes!

I guess I can't be happy with a brutal murderer walking out the door in 5 years!!All the lower counts were no brainers...how could he not be found guilty on taking her computer and also the charge of commiting the crime at night???If they found him guilty on each lower count he could have done more time!!I think the judge will give him the max...at least I hope the whole system isn't screwed up!

I'm glad the jury found the rich prep school white boy with anger issues guilty. I didnt think he'd get first degree, but they got him on second. The larceny charges showed he tried to cover it up. He should get at least 20 years....time served.

Just in on cnn.com

Jury recommends 26 yrs for George Huguely... judge can accept this or give a lesser amt. The Love family was reported to be visibly upset by the recommendation.

Sentencing in April.

LOL @ many of you thinking there's a even a chance he'll get anything close to the low end of the 5 to 40 sentencing range. For example, the low end of the range is usually given to those suspected of helping someone take a substantial step towards committing a non-premeditated felony murder (lookout men, getaway drivers, etc) and end up accepting a plea deal instead of going to trial, and those actually suspected of murder, but the prosecution has very weak evidence and offers a plea deal of 5-8 years. However, the low end of the range is totally out of the question for individuals who clearly committed murder (as in the evidence strongly supports that they are definitely guilty).

My guess is that the judge will end up giving him somewhere between 20 and 30 years with credit for time served.
