The conviction came quickly — after less than 10 hours of deliberations — following four months of testimony and hundreds of exhibits. Prosecutors asked that Ray be taken into custody immediately, but the judge denied their request. . . The self-help guru faces a sentence ranging from probation to nearly 12 years in prison.

We’re going to guess that as Ray is white and rich (though he disagrees) he won’t get much jail time. But we’ll have to wait and see.
