White Nationalist Found Guilty In Murder Of Heather Heyer

Last year, white nationalist James Alex Fields Jr. drove his car into a crowd protesting against a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, killing one of the counter-demonstrators, 32-year-old Heather Heyer.

On Friday, December 7, Fields was found guilty of first-degree murder and nine other counts.

According to Reuters, 21-year-old Fields didn't take the witness stand.

He faces a maximum penalty of life in prison.

During the two-week trial, Fieldsโ€™ lawyers tried to suggest that he felt intimidated by the protesters' hostility and acted to protect himself.

Prosecutors countered that Field was motivated by hatred and had come to the "Unite the Right" rally to harm others.
