Appeals denied for men involved in beating of Deandre Harris
Two men convicted in a bloody beating in the aftermath of the 2017 Unite The Right rally in Charlottesville will stay behind bars.
On Tuesday, Virginia's Court of Appeals officially denied appeals from both men. This stems from the beating of Deandre Harris inside the Market Street Parking Garage on August 12, 2017.
Jacob Goodwin, of Arkansas, and Alex Ramos, of Georgia, both appealed
in Charlottesville Circuit Court. The Court of Appeals says the trial court did not abuse its discretion or make an error in either of their proceedings.
Goodwin is serving eight years behind bars and Ramos is serving six years. A total of four men were sentenced to prison time for their roles in the beating.
Below is Attorney General Mark Herring's press release about the decision:
