The article says Schauer waived his right to having the jury decide whether his 1983 conviction constitutes aggravating circumstances that would ensure he gets a stricter (or maximum) sentence. I would bet the prosecutor demanded a jury trial because ever since 1983, Schauer was saying he was innocent, and people in the LCMS believed him, so just having a judge say he was guilty wasn't good enough this time. This other article says the jury trial lasted three days:
