18. I don't think he'll get probation.

Not if the Judge caught his broadcasts during and after the trial. He is just laughing in the Judge's face.

I think he will appeal any punishment however slight. He is a millionaire and can afford it.

An ankle monitor implies home confinement. That has no deterring effects at all. He needs to be sent to the slammer.

He is being punished solely for defying the subpoena, not his support for the coup or for his personal hygiene or ugliness, nor for his broadcasts. He should get at least 60 days in lockup; he can be sentenced concurrently for 30 days, but doesn't have to be. I don't think he will get a suspended sentence (for what?)

So, my bingo card guess is 60 days in the slammer. Unless his attorney can come up with a medical report severe enough to give him home confinement, which means nothing.

30 days is the mandatory minimum for each count. Eugene Jul 2022 #5
I hope he gets the max, which I think is 2 years. forgotmylogin Jul 2022 #6
