Gregory and Travis McMicheal receive second life sentences for Federal Hate Conviction for the murder of Ahmaud Arbery

Gregory and Travis McMicheal receive second life sentences for Federal Hate Conviction for the murder of Ahmaud Arbery

Gregory and Travis McMicheal are currently serving life sentences for the murder of Ahmaud Arbery, however they received additional time in recent court trial. A judge found both Gregory and Travis McMicheal guilty on Federal hate crimes earlier Monday morning. The new conviction adds a total of an additional seventeen years plus a life sentence.

Gregory and Travis McMicheal along with neighbor William Roddie Bryan targeted, chased and ultimately murdered Ahmaud as he ran through his local community. William Bryan who also received a 35 year sentence, recorded the entire altercation including the killing. As records show all 3 men chased Ahmaud with a pick up truck before Gregory pulled the trigger on his shot gun at close range.

The case of Ahmaud Arbery was yet another example of how serious hate crimes still are in America. As the world held their breathe following the cases of Breonna Taylor and George Floyd, Ahmaud’s case resulted in a small victory for the black community. As history has shown, the connection between the killing of black people and white supremacy is all too familiar in America. Both Gregory and Travis McMicheal were denied parole and must serve their sentences consecutively.
