Kedarie Johnson (USA)

On Friday, November 3, a jury took just 90 minutes to deliberate and find Jorge Sanders-Galvez, age 23, guilty of first-degree murder in the killing of Kedarie Johnson, a high school student who identified as transgender. Sanders-Galvez will be officially sentenced on December 18, and faces mandatory life in prison without parole.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions sent a federal attorney to assist in litigating this case against Sanders-Galvez in October.
