A judge in coastal Georgia will decide Friday if the three men facing life in prison for the 2020 murder of 25-year-old Ahmaud Arbery last year could ever be released.
The minimum penalty required by law for father and son Gregory and Travis McMichael and their neighbor William “Roddie” Bryan is a life sentence, but Judge Timothy Walmsley must determine if that sentence will come with or without the possibility of parole.
Travis McMichael, 35, was convicted of nine charges: malice murder, four counts of felony murder, two counts of aggravated assault, false imprisonment and criminal attempt to commit false imprisonment. Jurors found Gregory McMichael, 66, guilty of all of those charges except malice murder and Bryan, 52, guilty of six charges including three counts of felony murder.
