The three men charged with the February 2020 killing of Ahmaud Arbery, a 25-year-old Black man in Georgia, were convicted of murder on Wednesday by a jury consisting of 11 white jurors and one Black juror.

Gregory McMichael and his son Travis McMichael and their neighbor William “Roddie” Bryan all received felony murder convictions for the fatal shooting of Arbery.

Bryan was convicted of felony murder and faces a maximum sentence of life in prison without the possibility of parole. He also faces separate federal hate crime charges, including interference with rights. If convicted Bryan could face an additional penalty of up to a life sentence.

Gregory McMichael, who was also convicted of felony murder in Arbery’s death, faces a maximum sentence of life in prison without the possibility of parole. He has been indicted on three separate federal hate crime charges, including using, carrying, brandishing, and discharging a firearm during and in relation to a crime of violence.

Meanwhile, Travis McMichael was found guilty of four felony murder counts, two counts of aggravated assault, malice murder, criminal attempt to commit a felony, and false imprisonment.

He faces a life sentence and has separately been indicted for three separate federal hate crime charges, including attempted kidnapping.

After excusing the jury, the judge ordered Travis McMichael, Gregory McMichael, and Bryan to remain in the custody of the sheriff until their sentencing date. The federal trials for the three men are expected to begin in February.
