February 22, 2022

Jurors have reached a verdict in the Arbery Federal Hate Crimes Trial against the three white men who killed Ahmaud Arbery and found them all guilty.

According to reports, the jurors began discussions on the case on Monday afternoon, on whether the defendants, Gregory McMichael, Travis McMichael, and William Bryan fatally shot Arbery because of the color of his skin and to determine if his constitutional rights were violated. 

The defendants were recently found guilty of murder in state court and sentenced to life in prison, with Bryan receiving the possibility of parole. If convicted, they can face additional sentences of up to life in prison in this federal case. 

This verdict comes a day before the two-year anniversary of Ahmaud Arbery’s death.
