At last year’s debacle in Charlottesville Jacob Scott Goodwin was one of the protesters caught on camera assaulting a black man. Wearing a helmet and S.W.A.T. like shield he vivaciously attacked DeAndre Harris. The assault left the educational assistant with spinal injuries, a broken arm ad several lacerations to the head.
On Tuesday, May 1 a jury of nine women and three men found him guilty with a recommendation of 10 years of prison and a $20,000.00 fine. Goodwin’s mother reportedly gasped loudly when the proposal was read.
Presiding Judge Richard E. Moore will sentence him on August 23. Video of the graphic beating below.
