White supremacist sentenced to prison

A federal judge in Chicago sentenced a neo-Nazi to 3 1/2 years in prison for inciting violence against a juror in a different trial, officials said.

William White, 35, of Roanoke, Va., was sentenced Wednesday after posting the name, address and phone numbers of a jury foreman on his website, overthrow.com, the Chicago Sun-Times reported Thursday.

The jury foreman served in the trial of Matthew Hale, a fellow white supremacist who was convicted of trying to have federal Judge Joan Lefkow assassinated in 2005.

On his website, White wrote that the jury foreman was a "gay anti-racist ... who played a key role in convicting Matt Hale."

White also wrote that Hale lived with his black lover and said everyone involved in the Hale case deserved to be dead.
