HALE FOUND GUILTY OF SOLICITING MURDER
The man who organized Lewiston’s anti-somali rally last year, has been found guilty of soliciting the murder of a federal judge.
White supremacist Matthew Hale was convicted on four of the five counts against him. He was found “not guilty” of one of the two counts of soliciting the murder of a judge who had ruled against him in a trademark case. A jury in Chicago reached its verdict after two days of deliberations. No sentencing date has been set.
Hale is head of “The World Church of the Creator,” the neo-nazi group that sponsored the January, 2003 hate rally in Lewiston.
