Indiana White Supremacist Sentenced to Federal Prison for Vandalism at Synagogue

An Indiana man whose beliefs in Nazism and white supremacy motivated him to paint swastikas at a Carmel synagogue last year was sentenced to three years in prison for the hate crime, federal authorities said.

Nolan Brewer, 21, of Eminence, Indiana, was sentenced Monday for conspiring to violate the civil rights of Congregation Shaarey Tefilla, a Jewish synagogue, in the July 28, 2018, defacement. Brewer pleaded guilty to the federal hate crime, U.S Attorney Josh J. Minkler said in a news release Tuesday.

Brewer was also ordered to repay the synagogue $700 for the damage.
