The indictment also alleges that the men “attempted to unlawfully seize and confine [アーベリー氏] by chasing after him in their trucks in an attempt to restrain him, restrict his free movement, corral and detain him against his will, and prevent his escape”.

Jury selection in the hate crimes trial is scheduled to begin on 7 2月, 2022 in US District Court in Brunswick, Georgia – nearly two years after the men killed Mr Arbery on 23 2月, 2020.

More than two months passed before the men were charged for killing Mr Arbery at point-blank range with a shotgun, after phone-recorded video of the shooting leaked online and sparked international outrage and allegations that the men committed a “modern-day lynching” of a Black man.

The men were arrested on 7 五月.

According to the Georgia Bureau of Investigation, Mr Bryan told investigators that Travis McMichael, after shooting Mr Arbery, used a racist slur as he stood over his body.

The men faced nine state charges for killing Mr Arbery, including malice murder as well as felony murder, 逮捕監禁, 12ゲージの散弾銃による暴行の悪化, ピックアップトラックによる暴行の悪化.

The men were not charged with state-level hate crimes because Georgia was among only a handful of states without such statutes until after Mr Arbery’s death.

Following international outcry over the killing of Mr Arbery, Georgia lawmakers accelerated passage of a hate crime bill in June 2020, and Governor Brian Kemp signed it into law that month, despite delayed attempts to pass such measures in previous years.

State lawmakers first passed hate crimes legislation in 2000, but the state’s Supreme Court tossed out the law it characterised as “unconstitutionally vague”. Another attempt only narrowly passed the Georgia House of Representatives in 2019 and languished in a state Senate committee.

Georgia’s new law strengthens penalties against those who commit crimes against someone because of their race, 性別, sexual orientation, and mental and physical disabilities, among other protected groups. It also requires law enforcement to file reports of any such crimes to be tracked by the state.
