Good Guys Trial: What Graure Could Face

Yesterday, Vasile Graure was convicted on thirteen counts—including assault with intent to kill, assault with a dangerous weapon, arson, and mayhem—in connection with the fire that ravaged Glover Park strip club Good Guys last year. A sentencing hearing in the case won't be held until Jan. 13 of next year, but the U.S. Attorney's Office for the District of Columbia provided some information about the statutory maximum sentences for each of Graure's charges:

- Assault With Intent to Kill While Armed (three counts): 30 years per count

- Assault With a Dangerous Weapon (four counts): 10 years per count

- Aggravated Assault While Armed: 30 years

- Mayhem While Armed: 30 years

- Arson: 10 years

- Burglary II While Armed (two counts): 30 years per count

- Felony Destruction of Property: 10 years

Whether any of these counts will be served concurrently will be at judge Robert Richter's discretion.
