The trial of four defendants charged in the beating of gay young man in Atlanta’s Pittsburgh neighborhood was scheduled to take place Tuesday, May 29th.
But two pled guilty and now at least one will reportedly face federal hate crime charges.
Dorian Moragne and Dareal Williams pled guilty to all the charges which include criminal street gang activity, robbery by force and two counts of aggravated assault.
Reporter Matt Hennie of Project Q Atlanta was in the courtroom.
He says Dorian Moragne was hesitant to take a plea on the gang activity charge.
