We don't want more Black Pastors in court - Lawyer of White man arrested for killing Ahmaud Arbery says



Kevin Gough, Lawyer of the White man who is accused of killing Ahmaud Arbery has complained to the trial judge that "black pastors" coming to court and sitting with the family is unfair.



Kevin Gough represents William “Roddie” Bryan, who along with father and son Greg and Travis McMichael is charged with murder and other crimes in Arbery's Feb. 23, 2020, killing. The 25-year-old Black man was chased and fatally shot after the defendants spotted him running in their neighborhood outside the Georgia port city of Brunswick.



The lawyer expressed his displeasure in open court after activist, Rev. Al Sharpton showed up to sit with Arbery's family inside the courtroom.



He said;




"I've got nothing personally against Mr. Sharpton ... but if we're starting a precedent where we're gonna bring high-profile members of the African-American community into the courtroom to sit with the family during the trial in the presence of the jury, I believe that's intimidating and it's an attempt to consciously or unconsciously pressure or influence the jury.
