However, the appeal process cannot begin until the sentencing is complete. Jason Sheffield reported that he plans to appeal the jury’s guilty verdict.  

“This is a very difficult day for Travis McMichael and Greg McMichael,” Sheffield said to reporters outside the Brunswick, Georgia, courthouse. “These are two men who honestly believed that what they were doing was the right thing to do.
