Skinhead Group Ringleader Gets Sentenced

Associated Press/December 8, 2003

Portland, Ore. -- The ringleader of a skinhead gang was sentenced to nearly three years in prison Monday for burning crosses at a Jewish cemetery and spray-painting racist graffiti on a Korean church.

Brian Raymond Hauth, 27, who lives in Montana, pleaded guilty last summer to civil rights and conspiracy charges.

According to the FBI, Hauth was the "commander'' of a teen hate group called the Oregon State Boot Boys. Prosecutors said he and other boys took part in the vandalism in 2000 and 2001.
