James Fields Jr. found guilty on all charges in Charlottesville attack

A woman receives first-aid after a car ran into a crowd of protesters in Charlottesville Virginia

The white nationalist who drove his auto into a crowd protesting against a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, last year, killing one of the counter-demonstrators, has been found guilty of first-degree murder and nine other counts. He is also charged with 30 federal hate crimes and could face the death penalty.

The jury reached their verdict at the end of its first day of deliberations following a trial lasting nearly two weeks.

The jury is scheduled to convene Monday to determine Fields's sentence which carries a recommended sentence of 20 years to life.

He was found guilty on all of the charges he was facing, ABC affiliate WSET reports, which included first-degree murder as well as eight other charges relating to injuries and one relating to fleeing the scene of an accident.

Fields is an avowed supporter of neo-Nazi beliefs.

Fields ― a 21-year-old extremist associated with the hate group Vanguard America ― faced charges of first-degree murder and other felonies over the attack, in which he intentionally sped into protesters after the "Unite the Right" rally on August 12, killing one and injuring dozens more.

They showed video and presented witnesses testifying that there was no one around Fields' vehicle when he slowly backed it up the street and then raced it forward down the hill into the unsuspecting crowd.

"I am feeling the best I have felt in nearly a year and a half", Wednesday "Al" Bowie, one of the survivors of the attack whose pelvis was shattered in six places, told AFP.

"I'm very happy with the verdict", she said outside the courthouse.

Earlier in the day, he was hit with something that could have been urine, she said.

Heyer, who was 32 and a paralegal, had never protested before the demonstration against the Unite the Right rally, a friend who was at the protest told NPR. The white supremacist group was protesting the proposed removal of a statue of Robert E. Lee, the Confederate general.

One of Fields' former teachers said the 21-year-old showed a strong interest in Nazi ideology and Nazi leader Adolf Hitler in high school.

Jeanne "Star" Peterson told the court she was fast on her feet till her right leg was run over by Fields's auto.

Prosecutors showed jurors videos showing Fields carrying a shield and chanting anti-Semitic and homophobic slogans alongside other members of the far right, and presented a text Fields sent to his mother before departing for the rally after she had asked him to be careful.

Bowie told The Associated Press after the jury delivered its verdict that "this is the best I've been in a year-and-a-half".
