    An answer, but it's not really a definitive one until it survives the challenge of appeal.

    I could easily see a situation where the sitting judge found her guilty because of the political pressure knowing that it would get reversed upon appeal. I'm not saying that will happen, but it would shield the judge from the political backlash while still serving the law. Unethical in my opinion, but I could imagine it.

      Or the judge plans to give her a slap on the wrist. Her sentencing is in August and the judge has a wide latitude for a sentence for this. It could be anything from probation to 20 years. I seriously doubt she gets the maximum.
