Neo-Naz White Sentenced After Gruesome Threats

Threats To Kidnap, Rape And Kill Land William White A Prison Cell 
ORLANDO, FL. -- U.S. District Judge John Antoon, II today sentenced William A. White (38, Roanoke, VA) to 17 years and 6 months in federal prison for sending interstate threats with the intent to extort and using personal information without lawful authority in furtherance of a crime of violence.

According to evidence presented during the trial, in May 2012, White, a self-professed neo-Nazi, sent a number of e-mail threats to kidnap, rape, and kill the recipients’ family members, including children and grandchildren

Threats were sent to Lawson Lamar, who was State Attorney for the Ninth Judicial Circuit of Florida at the time, Judge Walter Komanski, and a Federal Bureau of Investigation task force agent. 

The threats listed the home addresses of the officials, and specifically named some of Mr. Lamar’s grandchildren as targets. Separate threats were also directed to Mr. Lamar’s son, as well as to United States District Judge James C. Turk, who had presided over White’s previous case in the Western District of Virginia.

His sentence will be served consecutive to a 92-month federal sentence that White is currently serving in a separate case that was prosecuted in the Western District of Virginia. A federal jury in Orlando found White guilty on September 12, 2014.

This case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation. It was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorneys Vincent S. Chiu and James D. Mandolfo.
