NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — A man pleaded guilty Wednesday to vandalizing a Tennessee Islamic Center last July with profane references to Allah in spray-paint and strips of bacon, federal prosecutors said.
Charles Dwight Stout III, 20, was initially charged with civil rights violations and obstruction of justice.
Stout now faces a year of supervision and must pay for the damage after pleading guilty to conspiracy and to causing damage to religious property because of its religious character, U.S. Attorney Donald Cochran said.
A judge will determine how much Stout will have to pay at a sentencing hearing in August.
