I really don't know how long they'd keep Umbridge in. The thing with the Dementors would definitely count, especially if she didn't get Fudge's approval first, and the lines-in-your-own-blood would count to...Attacking Hagrid, attacking Professor McGonagall--those definitely count. I'm not sure if her judgments under the Thicknesse regime would count because she was doing it according to the law at the time, but the locket and the eye were both stolen so that counts to. So, if we say 6 months each for the stolen properties, a year and a half each for attacking Hagrid and Professor McGonagall, I think between 5 and 10 years for cruel and unusual punishment, and between 5 and 10 years for siccing the dementors on Harry because a) innocent muggles might have been hurt, b) he was underage...does the Wizarding world have laws for the protections of minors? And anyway, he hadn't actually committed a crime. And c) it doesn't say whether she had the Minister's permission or not, so if she didn't, that would also count.
Aw, great, that looks so long now I read it. Oh well.
Bine: Molly's right (see below). Please read the rules. Since you're not yet sorted, take this as a warning.
Okay, thanks for the advice everybody. I'm going to be able to write an excellent story out of this now! What do guys see Umbridge as doing the moment she got out of Azkaban? What kind of future career or life could she possibly have?
And hedwig, from now on, no bright colors in the post. It drives the mods crazy. Just use the default color, or a not terribly neon one if you have two people 'talking' in the same post.
Does anyone know if her looks are specifically mentioned in the book, like eye and hair color? I know it's said she's short and toad like, of course. I couldn't find anything on her coloring, however. Thanks!
The Lexicon says that she had mousey brown hair that she wore short and tightly curled. She also liked to wear bows in it. It doesn't say anything about her eye colour, but I always pircture her with either blue or light green eyes.
Wonderful avvie by psijupiter. Totally brilliant and amazing banner by Julia/the opaleye!
I have been recently putting a lot of thought as to Dolores Umbridge's prison sentence. How long do you think the Dementors were there for her sentence before they were removed from Azkaban? We learned how Bellatrix came out of Azkaban, how do see Umbridge after being released from her prison sentence?
I don't think she would even have served any time with the Dementors. From what I can remember, it was one of Kingsley's first acts as Minister to remove them from Azkaban, and I am assuming he would have done that fairly quickly. Besides, Umbridge's case, I think, would have taken a rather long time to reach trial due to the number of Death Eaters and Imperioused to deal with, so she would be rather further back in the queue I think.

She would also be much thinner - Prison food always helps people lose weight.
I do hope I helped to answer your questions.
