The three men convicted in the murder of Ahmaud Arbery have each been sentenced to life in prison. The sentences -- for Travis McMichael, Gregory McMichael and William "Roddie" Bryan -- were handed down Friday by Georgia Judge Timothy Walmsley. While Bryan's sentence includes the possibility for parole after 30 years, father-and-son Gregory and Travis McMichael will have to live the rest of their lives behind bars, Walmsley ruled. The three men, who are White, were previously convicted in the February 2020 death of Arbery, a Black man who was jogging through their Georgia neighborhood. In handing down their sentences on Friday, Walmsley said, "I've read somewhere, and I don't remember where it was, that at a minimum, Ahmaud Arbery's death should force us to consider expanding our definition of what a neighbor may be and how we treat them. I argue that maybe a neighbor is more than the people who just own property around your house. I believe that assuming the worst in others we show our worst character.
