A former Baltimore police officer has been convicted of second-degree assault and misconduct for a beating last August that was captured in a video that went viral.

A judge found Arthur Williams not guilty of the more serious charge of first-degree assault.

The second-degree assault and misconduct convictions are misdemeanors. Williams resigned from the department on the day of the assault.

The victim of the beating, DaShawn McGrier, said just a few words as he walked out of court after hearing the judge's verdict.

"Justice ran its course, man. That's all. I have no further comment," McGrier said.

He can be seen in the cellphone video Williams being beating him repeatedly by Williams on a sidewalk in east Baltimore last August.

The trial lasted four days and included Williams testifying that he acted in self-defense that day, that he was trying to regain control of police equipment from McGrier.

McGrier also testified.

The cellphone video wasn't used as evidence in court, but one of two police body camera videos played by prosecutors showed McGrier sobbing while talking to paramedics after the beating.

McGrier was not charged with a crime.

In the end, the judge found Williams guilty of second-degree assault and misconduct and not guilty of first-degree assault, the most serious charge.

The prosecuting attorney didn't speak to reporters after the verdict.

But a statement released from the City State's Attorney's Office reads, in part, "The defendant abused his position and put a citizen he was sworn to protect in danger, and now he will have to face the consequences of his deplorable actions."

Williams' attorney, Tom Maronick, said that, although the former officer is disappointed about the misdemeanor convictions, he is relieved.

"We're very pleased with the result from the court that first-degree assault was a 'not guilty,'I mean that's a felony charge for him, and I thought from the very beginning that that was something that they didn't have evidence for," Maronick said.

The judge can give any penalty that's not cruel and unusual.

Williams’ sentencing is scheduled for Aug. 9. He faces 10 years for the second-degree assault charge. Misconduct in office is a common-law offense and does not carry a maximum sentence.
