Brian Gene Nichols is a rapist and murderer known for his escape and killing spree in the Fulton County Courthouse in Atlanta, Georgia, on March 11, 2005. Brian was on trial for rape when he escaped custody and murdered the judge presiding over his trial, a court reporter, a Fulton County Sheriff’s deputy, and later an ICE special agent. Twenty-six hours after a large-scale manhunt was launched in the metropolitan Atlanta area, he was taken into custody. The prosecution charged Brian with committing 54 crimes during the escape; he was found guilty on all counts on November 7, 2008, and was subsequently sentenced to life in prison.

The jury deliberated for twelve hours, over two days, before finding Brian Nichols guilty of all 54 counts, on November 7, 2008.

On December 13, 2008, Brian was sentenced to multiple life sentences with no chance of parole. Superior Court Judge James Bodiford handed down the maximum sentence on each of the charges, to run consecutively. Brian was spared multiple death sentences when the jury failed to reach a unanimous decision, as required by Georgia law, to recommend the death penalty. Judge Bodiford said, “If there was any more I could give you, I would.” Brian is incarcerated in Georgia Diagnostic and Classification State Prison.
