A third man was found guilty Monday for his role in the beating of DeAndre Harris in a parking garage during last year’s “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville.
Daniel Borden of Ohio entered an Alford plea on a malicious wounding charge. Under the plea, Borden did not admit guilt but conceded that prosecutors had enough evidence to convict him.
In widely seen video online, Harris was chased into Charlottesville’s main municipal parking garage by several white men Aug. 12, the day of the rally. He was punched, kicked and hit with a wooden board and sustained serious injuries, including a head laceration requiring multiple staples.
So far, two other men have been found guilty of charges related to the assault: Jacob Scott Goodwin, 22, of Arkansas, and Richard Preston, 53, a KKK imperial wizard, of Maryland.
Borden was found guilty by a Charlottesville Circuit Court judge and is scheduled to be sentenced Oct. 1. He faces up to 20 years in prison.
