LGBT activists ask judge for no more jail time for Brandon White’s anti-gay attackers

A group of Atlanta LGBTQ activists wrote a letter to Fulton Superior Court Judge Jackson Bedford asking a light sentence be imposed on two young men who pleaded guilty to the Feb. 4 beating of gay man Brandon White, the GA Voice has learned.

According to the letter, the activists believe the attack was motivated by homophobia, but they do not think it will be helped by the attackers serving further time in prison.

A hearing in the case is underway now at the Fulton County Court House, with several of the activists present. Please check back for updates throughout the day.
