Perform Racial Insults, US Men Sentenced Trial

A man who admits to a racist insult and threatens a woman in a street fight incident in Pennsylvania last year has been sentenced to 10 years probation.

58-year-old Roger Chenault pleaded guilty last week intimidating ethnic loads, terrorist threats, attacks and reckless driving. He has spent a month in jail.

Prosecutors in Lancaster County say the white Chenault turned a corner in front of a black woman on Route 999 last July and confronted him. Prosecutors added Chenault threatened to shoot him.

Chenault says workplace injuries that cause his left leg to be amputated and making him a wheelchair have influenced his mind. But the judge said it was not a reason to condone his cause. He has previously been found guilty of offensive in 2013 and related incidents of street rage. [em/ii]

When meeting with German journalists in Baghdad last year, Lindi claimed to regret his actions and wanted to go home to his family.

In a separate case, an alleged French militant who has been convicted seven months in prison for illegally entering Iraq, ordered to be released and deported.

Later on Sunday (18/2) local time, a Turkish woman was sentenced to death for joining ISIS. The other 11 foreign women, who are the widows of the dead militants, were sentenced to life imprisonment on the same indictment.
