Attorney: White supremacist trial to be in Chicago
ROANOKE, Va. – A white supremacist in Virginia accused of allegedly threatening a federal juror will have his trial in Chicago.
William A. White was charged with obstruction of justice. He’s a commander of the American National Socialist Workers Party.
Assistant U.S. Attorney Tom Bondurant says the charge involves alleged threats to a Chicago jury foreman in the 2004 case of Matthew Hale, who was convicted of soliciting the murder of a federal judge.
Hale was the leader of an organization which held similar neo-Nazi beliefs as White’s organization.
White’s Web site — www.over throw.com, which authorities have shut down — recently posted the headline “Kill This N—–?” next to a photo of Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama.
In another post, the site called for the lynching of six black teenagers charged with assault in a civil rights case in Jena, La.
White, the self-proclaimed leader of the American National Socialist Workers Party, described by authorities as a hate group, is charged under a new law that was an outgrowth from the killings of two family members of a Chicago judge.
White allegedly posted the phone number and address of a juror he called a “gay, Jewish anti-racist” who voted to convict Hale in 2004. White is alleged to have advocated harm against the juror, authorities said.
