A white man who prosecutors say “came for battle” when he took part in the brutal beating of a black man during last year’s white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, has been found guilty of malicious wounding.

Jurors on Tuesday recommended a sentence of 10 years for Arkansas native Jacob Scott Goodwin in the Aug. 12 attack on DeAndre Harris. Some of the prison time could be suspended, but he must pay a $20,000 fine.

Harris, 20, suffered a spinal injury, a broken arm and head lacerations that required eight staples after the parking garage assault. Three others were arrested.
