ABSTRACT
The outcome of the prosecutions of four white teens charged in the death of a black man, Michael Griffith, 23, who was chased onto a busy highway and was killed by a car. After 12 days of deliberations, the jury found three whites--Jon Lester, Scott Kern, and Jason Ladone--guilty of manslaughter and assault charges. A fourth teen was found innocent. The trial results have received mixed reviews from blacks, despite the guilty verdict.
