What’s next in Ahmaud Arbery case after guilty verdicts for 3 men – ABC News

Speaking with reporters Wednesday, lead prosecutor Linda Dunikoski said the guilty verdicts carry mandatory sentences of life in prison, but with a possibility of parole.

The state will be asking for life without parole plus 35 years for Travis and Gregory McMichael, and life without parole plus 15 years for Bryan, Dunikoski said. The paperwork has already been filed, she added.

Attorneys for the defendants have said they plan to appeal the guilty verdicts, which they can begin once sentencing is done. Jason Sheffield, one of the attorneys for Travis McMichael, told reporters Wednesday that a change of venue “could certainly become a part of the appeal.”
