After all three men on trial in the death of Ahmaud Arbery were convicted of murder, defense attorney Laura Hogue said, "I’m floored, floored with a capital ‘F,'" as she spoke to her client Gregory McMicheal's wife, Leigh, according to a pool reporter who was in the room.
The comments were made as the courtroom was emptying following the reading of the verdict.
Leigh McMichael's "face was red with tears," the pool reporter observed, as she spoke to her husband's attorney.
Hogue said she was "very disappointed."
Hogue's co-counsel, Frank Hogue, said they planned to appeal the conviction, the pool reporter said.
Attorneys for Travis McMichael, Leigh's son, declined to comment.
