Judge cuts Huguely sentence by two years

Charlottesville Circuit Judge Edward Hogshire reduced only slightly a jury’s recommended sentence for the former University of Virginia lacrosse player convicted of second-degree murder in the 2010 beating death of his ex-girlfriend, according to the Richmond Times-Dispatch.

Hogshire imposed a 23-year sentence for the murder; the jury had chosen 25 years. A one year sentence for the theft of the victim’s computer will be served concurrently under Hogshire’s ruling. According to the paper, about 15 percent of George Huguely’s sentence could be dropped if he’s credited fully for so-called “good time” while imprisoned.
