Prosecutors seek 30-year sentence for Derek Chauvin; defense requests probation : news

In all seriousness though, this would be a lot more newsworthy if the defense WASN’T asking for the bare minimum. That’s their job.

EDIT:

According to the article, the recommended sentencing guidelines for this are between 10 to 15 years.

Even if we take the “maximum” recommendation of 15 years, the prosecution is seeking a 100% increase to that recommendation.

Objectively, what the defense is asking for (a 100% reduction to that recommendation) is literally no more absurd than what the prosecution is asking for.

Obviously I do not think that he should only get probation, nor do I even think that 15 years is a long enough sentence, but get out of your feelings and realize this is how the justice system works.
