Two men have been convicted in the United States of conspiracy to attack electrical substations. 21 year old Christopher Cook sentenced to 7 years and 8 months in prison, and the 25-year-old Jonathan Frost will be punished with a prison term of 5 years, informs Reuters.
A justice ministry spokesman said the men’s actions were motivated by ideas of white racial superiority and were intended to provoke civil unrest and an economic crisis.
Cook and Frost pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to sponsor extremists. The third defendant in the case Jackson Sowall, who was also charged, pleaded guilty and is awaiting sentencing.
Earlier it was reported that hearings in court on choosing a measure of punishment for a member of the US National Guard Jack Douglas Teixeira will take place on 27 April.
