The white supremacist who moved to the town of Leith in hopes of establishing an all-white enclave was sentenced today after reaching a deal with prosecutors. Craig Cobb was arrested in November after patrolling the small town with his racist friend at his side, and guns in their hands.
For that, Cobb faced felony terrorizing counts. It was in February that Cobb reached a deal with prosecutors that called for him to plead guilty to lesser charges.
The judge ordered a pre-sentence investigation before accepting the plea deal, according to KXNews.
Tuesday morning Judge David Reich accepted the plea deal but with conditions.
Cobb is charged with five counts of menacing and one count of terrorizing. He is sentenced to four years of supervised probation, which includes GPS monitoring, but will not serve more time in prison.
Cobb said today in court that he regrets his actions and accepts responsibility for them. He says he plans to move to Missouri to take care of his mother.
Wait, he has a mother?
Leith Mayor Ryan Schock, who wanted a 4-year prison term for Cobb, said outside the court that it would take a long time for the town to recover. He said, “‘When are we going to be safe from him? He has made his mark on our lives.”
The Daily Mail reports, “The terms of Cobb’s probation bar him from having contact with victims, but Cook, one of the victims in the case, said he had been given no information on where Cobb will be going. He and mayor Schock said they worry whether the town will be safe – especially since Cobb gave three of his Leith lots to white separatist Tom Metzger, National Socialist Movement Commander Jeff Schoep and white supremacist Alex Linder.”
Cobb said in court, “I regret my actions. I know I was wrong and I accept responsibility for my actions. It was an unfortunate confluence of circumstances and bad decisions on my part.”
Earlier this month Cobb said that he plans to ‘retire from white nationalism’ because he’s tired of the spotlight.
Cobb has admitted to his friendship with Frazier Glenn Cross, who is accused of killing three people at Jewish sites in Kansas earlier this month.
Cobb also admitted earlier to speaking with Cross just three days before the killings.
There were 26 items listed that Cobb must adhere to in the plea deal.
A few of them are as follows:
- He can have no contact with the victims.
- He cannot be in possession of guns or weapons.
- He must be employed.
- GPS Monitoring.
- He cannot associate with known felons.
- His residence, car and computer may be searched at any time.
He’ll be back in prison in no time.
After a DNA test in November, it was established that Cobb has a ‘little black’ in him.
