NEW ORLEANS, [LA]--Kenny Knight managed to stay out of trouble while working as a “lieutenant” and campaign manager for former Ku Klux Klan Grand Wizard David Duke, but his role in a Louisiana “pill mill” scheme is likely to get him prison time. Knight faces up to five years in prison after pleading guilty to selling opioids illegally at Axcess Medical Clinics in the New Orleans area, a chain he owned. In his plea, he admitted to running the operation where patients at the cash-only clinic were prescribed opiates like oxycodone without seeing doctors, but also to “telling out of state patients to park away from the clinics so their cars wouldn’t draw suspicion.” Knight, the rep

UNITED STATES, [US]--In the days before he walked into Charleston’s Mother Emanuel church with a gun and murdered nine people, Dylann Roof put together a manifesto. It was a bizarre, rambling tract loaded with racial and political animus, much of it cribbed from white-supremacist groups with ties to South Carolina’s Republican establishment. Roof ’s manifesto was reminiscent of a similar document penned in 2008 by a conservative Tennessee man named Jim David Adkisson. Adkisson was enraged by the looming nomination of a black man as the Democratic candidate for the presidency. In July 2008, Adkisson walked into a Unitarian Universalist church in downtown Knoxville during a performance

MORRISTOWN, [NJ]--Vandals struck five New Jersey churches with predominantly black congregations this weekend — incidents that police are investigating as possible hate crimes. The perpetrators destroyed the outside of the buildings overnight from Friday into Saturday, including shattering a stained glass window and damaging or breaking exterior signs, according to prosecutors. Authorities are looking into the episodes as bias crimes, which is New Jersey’s version of a hate crime, events it defines as “an offense with the purpose to intimidate an individual or group of individuals because of race, color, religion, gender, disability, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression,

PORTLAND, [OR]--U.S. District Court Judge Anna Brown sentenced defendant Darryl Thorn on Tuesday to a year and a half in federal prison followed by three years supervised release for his role in last year’s occupation of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge. Following prison time, Brown ordered Thorn be released to a halfway house for up to 90 days. In March, a jury found Thorn guilty of conspiracy to impede federal officers as well as carrying a firearm in a federal facility. Both are felonies. Brown also found Thorn guilty of two misdemeanors: trespassing and tampering with vehicles and equipment. Prior to his trial, prosecutors offered Thorn a deal: He could plead guilty to trespassing,

GRAND JUNCTION, [CO]--A 41-year-old man who sexually assaulted three children in 2014 was convicted of more than a dozen counts by a Mesa County jury on Friday. Dax Ace Anderson pleaded guilty to 11 counts of sexual assault and multiple other sentence-enhancing counts after his arrest in 2015. Anderson, who espouses anti-government beliefs associated with so-called "sovereign citizens," never once appeared before the jury during his trial before Mesa County District Judge Valerie Robison, although he filed multiple hand-written letters and motions with the court. Mesa County prosecutor Jennifer Springer wrote in an email that she was grateful to jurors on the case, which involved victim test

ST. JOHNS PARISH, [LA]--A judge has decided to move the most high-profile murder trial in recent St. John the Baptist Parish history to St. Martin Parish. Judge J. Sterling Snowdy, of 40th Judicial District Court, announced the move last month for the scheduled Feb. 15 trial of Brian Smith, who faces the death penalty if convicted. He is accused of having a role in a 2012 shootout that killed two Sheriff’s Office deputies. Snowdy had approved a change of venue in March, calling the St. John Courthouse “the heart of controversy” for the defendant. The judge chose St. Martin Parish after a visit to the area. Snowdy’s ruling was in response to a motion filed in 2014 by Richard Bourke, t

PORTLAND, [OR]--A man who tried to get Mormon church leaders to mediate an end to last year’s occupation of a federal wildlife center in Oregon by armed militants was sentenced on Wednesday to two years on probation for his own brief role in the takeover. Wesley Kjar, 33, a Utah native who prosecutors said acted as a bodyguard for occupation leader Ammon Bundy in the early days of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge siege, pleaded guilty last June to a single count of conspiracy to impede federal officers. The charge carries a maximum penalty of six years in prison. Federal prosecutors had recommended Kjar (pronounced “Care”) be confined to his home during the first five months of his
