All three men found guilty of the murder of Ahmaud Arbery risk life imprisonment when convicted.

Travis McMichael, who shot and killed Arbery, was convicted of all nine charges. Five of the charges – malicious murder and four counts of crimes – result in a possible life sentence.

His father, Gregory McMichael, was found guilty of everything except the first point – malicious murder. He may risk life in prison for the four counts of murder for which he was convicted.

The third defendant, William “Roddie” Bryan Jr., was convicted of six of the nine charges. He was found not guilty of malicious murder, innocent with one of the felony murder charges and innocent with aggravated assault with a firearm. But Bryan could still be sentenced to life in prison when he was convicted of three of the charges of crimes.

The judge did not schedule the sentencing today, but he said he plans to set a date in the coming weeks.
