UPDATE: This Houston Chronicle story now provides more details about the full Olis resentencing hearing. It notes an interesting point raised by the defense: "[Defense attorney] Gerger said the prosecutors were trying to discourage defendants from going to trial, not from committing crimes, with extremely long sentences. 'What the prosecution is asking for goes way beyond what's needed to deter crime,' Gerger said. 'They want to deter trials.'"
