Nathaniel Veltman left the courthouse in a cell van after the sentencing hearing.
The terrorist component is not a separate charge, and juries do not explain how they reach their verdict, so it is unclear what role, if any, the terrorism allegations played in their decision.
Judge Renee Pomerance could make findings on that issue as part of the sentencing process later this month. She will have to examine the facts as part of the proceedings.
Prosecutors had argued the attack was an act of terrorism committed by a self-described white nationalist, while defense attorneys had argued the defendant did not have criminal intent to kill the victims and that the attack was not deliberate and planned.
During the trial, Nathaniel Veltman claimed that x27;he had been influenced by the writings of a gunman who carried out the mass killings of 51 Muslim worshipers at two mosques in New Zealand in 2019.
He also said he had considered using his van, which he had purchased a month earlier, to carry out an attack and had searched for information online about what happens when pedestrians are hit by cars at different speeds.
He told the jury he felt an overwhelming urge to hit the Afzaal family after seeing them walking on a sidewalk, adding that #x27;he knew they were Muslims because of the clothes they wore and noticed that the man in the group had a beard.
Jurors also saw a video of Nathaniel Veltman telling a detective that his attack was motivated by white nationalist beliefs. The court also heard he wrote a manifesto in the weeks before the attack, describing himself as a white nationalist and spreading unfounded conspiracy theories about Muslims.
