CHARLOTTESVILLE, Virginie, 7 décembre (Reuters) - Le jeune James Fields, poursuivi pour avoir mortellement renversé au volant de sa voiture une militante antiraciste de 32 ans lors d'un rassemblement de suprémacistes blancs en août 2017 à Charlottesville aux Etats-Unis, a été reconnu coupable vendredi de meurtre avec préméditation. Il encourt une peine de prison allant de 20 ans à la perpétuité.

Le 12 août 2017, il avait foncé avec sa voiture sur un groupe de manifestant qui protestait contre un rassemblement nationaliste. Face aux critiques de son propre camp, il avait ensuite promulgué une résolution condamnant " les nationalistes blancs, les suprémacistes blancs, le Ku Klux Klan, les néonazis et les autres groupes prônant la haine ".

La culpabilité de James Field a été annoncée au terme d'un procès qui a duré une dizaine de jours et d'un délibéré de plus de sept heures. Le jury composé de sept femmes et cinq hommes a déterminé que l'accusé avait délibérément lancé sa Dodge Challenger dans la foule.

Plusieurs victimes ont également été appelées à témoigner au cours du procès de blessures ayant pour certaines des séquelles à vie.

Les avocats de James Fields avaient plaidé la légitime défense au cours du procès. Mais l'accusation a, au contraire, argué que le jeune homme avait agi de manière préméditée, et que plusieurs preuves - photos et vidéos - le prouvaient.
