In addition to second degree murder, the Chicago police officer was convicted of 16 counts of aggravated battery, one for each shot he fired. Those charges carry a steeper sentence than the second-degree murder conviction, legal experts say.
Van Dyke could be sentenced to as little as probation and as long as 20 years in prison for second-degree murder. Each aggravated battery conviction carries a sentence of 6 to 30 years in prison.
