Three Men Sentenced to Life in Prison in Murder of Ahmaud Arbery
A Georgia judge sentenced the three white men convicted of killing Ahmaud Arbery, a 25-year-old Black man, to life in prison. Travis McMichael and his father, Gregory McMichael, were sentenced to life without the possibility of parole, with William Bryan eligible for parole after 30 years.
Ahmaud Arbery was murdered. It’s a tragedy, it’s a tragedy on many, many levels. Almost — I’m sorry — on Feb. 23 of 2020, almost two years ago, a resident of Glynn County, a graduate of Brunswick High, a son, a brother, a young man with dreams was gunned down in this community. Again after Ahmaud Arbery fell, the McMichaels turned their backs. It’s, again, a disturbing image, and they walked away. This was a killing. It was callous. Mr. McMichael, the court sentences you as follows: Count 1, malice murder, life without the possibility of parole. Greg McMichael, the court sentences you as follows: Count 1, malice murder, defendant was found not guilty. Count 2, felony murder, life without the possibility of parole. Mr. Bryan was found not guilty on Count 1 and Count 2. The court sentences Mr. Bryan to life with the possibility of parole on Count 3.
