DeAndre Harris, the black Virginia man who was beaten with pipes and planks in a parking garage during the 2017 white-nationalist rally in Charlottesville, says justice has been served, after a man involved in the attack was sentenced to four years in prison. Harris was left with a broken arm and a concussion after the attack near the Unite the Right rally in August 2017. Footage of the attack went viral in the days following the march. Daniel Borden of Ohio was sentenced Monday for participating in the beating. Harris told CNN he was hoping for a longer sentence, but he’s just glad to be alive. “I think he should have got more time... but justice has been served. I’m still here. That’s all I’m really grateful for,” he told CNN’s Don Lemon. During his sentencing, Borden apologized to Harris, expressed remorse for his role in the beating, and insisted that he is not a bigot.
