White Supremacist To Appear in Federal Court


Oregon white supremacist Daniel Lee Jones will appear in court this afternoon on federal charges for allegedly threatening a NAACP leader in Ohio by mailing a noose to the organization's Lima, Ohio office in February 2008.

Authorities say Jones, a regional director for the American National Socialist Workers Party, had previously sent hate mail to the NAACP's Jason Upthegrove, an advocate for racial equality. Upthegrove spoke out against the hate mail and organized assemblies to help rally Lima community members while the FBI investigated the noose's origin.

If convicted of mailing a threatening communication, Jones faces a maximum jail term of five years and a potential fine of up to $250,000.
