"I think it's important to finish the run for justice," says Gerald Griggs as he and many others plan to be in Brunswick Friday as the 3 men convicted of murdering Ahmaud Arbery are to be sentenced. "We've been there since the very beginning supporting this family," adds the Atlanta attorney, "and I think it's important for us to be there when the sentences are handed down."
The Atlanta criminal defense lawyer tells Audacy Atlanta's Maria Boynton that he fully expects the judge to hand down a sentence of life in prison to each because "there are only three punishments for murder and death is not on the table."
The defense is expected to plead for the possibility of parole.
It was November 24, 2021, when a jury found Travis and Greg McMichael, and William "Roddie" Bryan guilty of killing the 25 year old unarmed black man as he ran down a street.
