    So as long as the inmate follows good behavior they are automatically released after serving the 85% instead of just being eligible as it was with parole... that now gone the prisoner automatically is released at the 85% mark(of course with no infractions incurred while incarcerated)...

    That's the way I read it. Huguely will spend no less than 22 years in prison unless the judge reduces the sentence in April, or he could spend longer if while in prison he does something to extend his sentence beyond the 85%.

    I'm disappointed in the sentence. GH5 should have received more time. What an insult to Love's family and friends. Once again, we see a man with a history of violence get a slap on the wrist for taking "his" woman's life.

    I hate the whole "crimes of passion" meme, it treats women as property and excuses murder by throwing a warped definition of "love" into the mix. People who love you, don't beat you to death. People who view you as a possession do. But then this is Virginia, home of the state-mandated object rape bill so I guess I should be glad they didn't just go ahead and acquit him.
    all my comments are just my opinion. jmho. moo. etc. etc.

    Jury recommends 26 years in prison for former Virginia lacrosse player
    From Michael Christian, InSession
    updated 3:59 AM EST, Thu February 23, 2012

    Charlottesville, Virginia (CNN) -- A judge is considering a jury recommendation that a former University of Virginia lacrosse player be sentenced up to 26 years in prison for his role in the death of his ex-girlfriend.

    A jury returned the recommendation late Wednesday, hours after finding George Huguely V guilty of second-degree murder and grand larceny in the May 2010 death of Yeardley Love.

    The case captured national attention with a spotlight shown on the volatile relationship of star athletes Huguely and 22-year-old Love, who both played lacrosse for the university's nationally-ranked teams.

    Judge Edward Hogshire is expected to sentence 24-year-old Huguely on April 16, at which time he can accept or reduce the jury's recommendation....


    If he gets anything less than the full 26 years I'll be

    Something (among others) that bothers me is that in the article it says a little girl relative of Huguely's was crying hysterically when the verdict was read and saying "That's too much"...Is she brainwashed? Too young to realize that he took someone's LIFE?

    I was hoping for a different verdict and a longer sentence, but maybe the jury really didn't feel there was premeditation, and if they gave him first degree murder, the judge would have cut the sentence down even lower than what was eventually given. I don't understand the jury ignoring the break-in and robbery, though. I think he deserves DP.

    My question is why would you bring what is described as a little girl to such a trial? It's not something a little kid should be exposed to imo.

    JMO, a ploy to try to invoke sympathy from the jury, no other reason.
    Just my opinion, of course.

    I agree Columbo, and you know what else really bothered me? I mean REEEEAAAALLLLY bothered me? That statement by Huguely's attorney, talking about how George was "fighting for fairness" and how "spiritual" he is. How he is proud to have represented George and how they're looking forward to some "corrections", implying the sentence was unjust.

    GAG ME!!

    What's fair about a 6', 200-plus lb young man beating a beautiful young girl to death? A young girl who had done nothing to deserve that sort of rage and cruelty? I'm struggling to see how one could describe George Huguely V as remotely spiritual, unless you mean he is fond of spirits.

    Yes, Mr. Lawrence, I wish we could make some corrections, too. Namely your client getting the maximum sentence, that is.

    more comments from a juror, seems the jury bought the defence argument in part that George did not intend to kill her, and seems one of the jurors had much influence on the sentence,

    After reading the one juror's comments, I now believe more than ever that we have to get rid of this ridiculous "crime of passion" meme. All it does is excuse abuse and violence against (mostly) women. Enough already. Crimes of passion have nothing to do with "passion," or love, and everything to do with the antiquated notion that women are property and that men hold dominion over them. Calling a murder a "crime of passion" is just a fancy way of glorifying domestic violence. How do we go about getting the legal system (i.e., judges and juries) to start treating these crimes as the hate crimes they truly are?

    It was pretty clear that he didn't intend to kill her, if he had he would not have left her alive. So I think the jury made the right decision there.

    I think a 5-10 year sentence would be more appropriate given the circumstances. That would give him time to reflect and mature. The problem with him is the consumption of alcohol. He would probably be a productive member of society without it, but with it (certainly at his currrent level of maturity) he is a danger. I think in cases like this (or any crime involving alcohol for that matter, including things like DUI, vandalism or common assault) the sentence should include a life-time prohibition on the use of alcohol, enforced by probation.

    More like he left her to die. He took her laptop after the beating so they couldn't see the threatening emails. If he didn't think she was going to die why would he try to get rid of her laptop? Clearly if he thought she was going to live why bother because she'd be alive to tell who beat her.

    Sorry, but I think he knew after he lost it that he did her in this time. Five or ten years is not enough for taking a life. Frankly this spoiled man deserved more than 26 years.

    ITA, evelyn24. GH5 left YL knowing she was seriously injured. IMO he probably thought she was dead. But instead of calling 911, he took her laptop with incriminating evidence and threw it away, and then he lied to his friends about where he had been. GH5 would have no reason to destroy evidence and fake an alibi if he had left YL alive and well.

    CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. — Witnesses at a sentencing hearing for a former University of Virginia lacrosse player are testifying about violent encounters in the years and months before he fatally beat his girlfriend.

    One witness said Thursday that George W. Huguely V beat him after he went home from a party with Yeardley Love, while another said an angry Huguely put his hands around her neck in a bar.

    Pretty boy got:
    George Huguely V, the University of Virginia lacrosse player convicted of killing his college girlfriend, Yeardley Love of Cockeysville, was sentenced to 23 years in prison, according to news reports.

    The jury that convicted him of second-degree murder and grand larceny in February had recommended 26 years. Charlottesville Circuit Judge Edward Hogshire, who presided over Huguely's trial, also gave him 1 year for grand larceny, which will be served concurrently. Huguely will get three additional years but they are suspended and will get credit for time served.

    So sad today for Yeardleys' family....For George and his family I have nothing to say that can be posted.
    I feel that when he's released he may still be dangerous.

    When he gets out, he'll still be a handsome young man, Yeardley Love will be long forgot & some other beautiful, intelligent woman will buy into the "tragic accident" excuse and wind up with a thread of her very own on Websleuths.

    Sportscenter just said he'll have to serve at least 85% of his sentence and that means he'll get out when he's 44.

    Nah. He'll mess up in jail and get more time. Somebody like that is not going to be able to be good for long in jail, definitely not good for 85% of his sentence. He'll get into a fight and his sentence will be made longer. I will not be surprised when this happens.
