Brunswick, Georgia USA - January 18, 2021: Marcus Arbery, Sr., father of Ahmaud Arbery, carries a portrait of his son in the Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day Parade.

The three men convicted of murder in Ahmaud Arbery’s fatal shooting have been found guilty of federal hate crimes.  A jury delivered its verdict this morning after four hours of deliberations.  The jury found that father and son Greg and Travis McMichael and neighbor William “Roddie” Bryan violated Arbery’s civil rights in the fatal chase and targeted him because he was Black.

The McMichaels and Bryan had pleaded not guilty to the hate crime charges.
