White nationalist James Alex Fields Jr. on Tuesday was sentenced to life in prison, plus 419 years, after being convicted of murdering anti-racism protester Heather Heyer during the 2017 “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville.

In addition to his prison sentence, Fields also faces half a million dollars in fines related to the attack, including a $100,000 fine for first-degree murder.

The 12-person jury recommended the sentence to the Charlottesville Circuit Court Judge who heard that case.

Judge Moore will make the final determination on March 29th.
