Can Chauvin's past "bad" behavior and reprimands be brought up at sentencing?

Asking for America.

As in, "Those Americans who believe in the rule of law"...

1. I'd love to know too...

I think the judge should have all the evidence & complaints against him before he makes a decision on the length of time this murdering asshole should spend in prison.

2. seems to me if prior convictions...

add to any persons sentence, it should be the same for any person. But then there's the judge. If he thinks Maxine Waters speaking to people is enough to cause a mistrial, his judging appears questionable.

3. I believe so

Prior to the verdict, he is considered innocent, and therefore prior bad acts cannot be part of the prosecution. Now that he has been found guilty, his past reprimands can establish a long standing problem that should influence his sentence.

Honestly, I wonder if he would have been better off if he had been just tried before a judge, instead of a jury.
