Jacob Goodwin, part of a group caught on camera severely beating a black man during the "Unite the Right" rally in Charlottesville, Virginia last August, was found guilty on one count of malicious wounding, and jurors recommended a sentence of 10 years in prison, a $20,000 fine, in addition to a rehabilitation plan, reports NBC 29.

Flashback: The incident, that left the victim DeAndre Harris with "a concussion, spinal fracture, eight staples to his head, multiple gashes, and a chipped tooth," per BuzzFeed, was part of the violence that erupted during a rally of white supremacists. Goodwin, a white nationalist, argued he acted in self defense, while Harris' attorney, Nina-Alice Antony, said Goodwin was looking for a fight, and that he was "outfitted for battle." Goodwin is the first of cour to face trial over the attack.

More young people are being infected with the coronavirus, and even though they're less likely to die from it, experts warn the virus' spread among young adults may further fuel outbreaks across the United States.

Why it matters: Some people in their 20s and 30s face serious health complications from COVID-19, and a surge in cases among young people gives the virus a bigger foothold, increasing the risk of infection for more vulnerable people.

Joint Chiefs chairman condemns Confederate symbols

Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Mark Milley criticized Confederate symbols before the House Armed Services Committee on Thursday, and called the Civil War an "act of treason."

Why it matters: Milley said that minority service members — which he said make up 43% of the U.S. military — may feel uncomfortable that Army bases are named for Confederate generals who "fought for an institution of slavery that may have enslaved one of their ancestors."
