3 Men Who Killed Ahmaud Arbery Found Guilty Of Federal Hate Crimes

All 3 Men Have Been Found Guilty In Federal Hate Crimes Trial For The Murder Of Ahmaud Arbery

This Tuesday, a federal jury in Georgia on found the three men convicted of killing Ahmaud Arbery guilty of hate crime and other charges!

The jury found that father and son Greg and Travis McMichael and their neighbor William “Roddie” Bryan guilty of all the federal charges they individually faced, which included hate crimes, attempted kidnapping and the use of a firearm to commit a crime.

Back in November, the three were convicted on state murder charges and sentenced to life in prison. Travis and Gregory McMichael were sentenced without the possibility of parole.

The judge said on Tuesday that sentencing following this latest verdict would be scheduled once pre-sentencing reports have been filed, according to CNN.

As we previously reported, the father-son duo and Bryan chased Arbery, 25, through their coastal Georgia neighborhood in trucks. The three men spotted Arbery running by their homes in February 2020, and cornered him and Travis McMichael fatally shot him with a shotgun.

His death sparked nationwide outrage as video of the incident went viral online.

Wanda Cooper-Jones, the mom of Ahmaud Arbery, told reporters on Tuesday that, while the conviction of Travis McMichael, Gregory McMichael and William “Roddie” Bryan is a “victory”, federal prosecutors only did what “they were made to do” because the judge turned down their plea deal. “What the DOJ did today they were made to do today,” she said.
