A white supremacist has been sentenced to nearly 20 years in prison for plotting to bomb a historic Colorado synagogue last year as a judge described the case as ‘dripping with Nazism.’
Richard Holzer, 28, was sentenced to 235 months in jail with an additional 14-year term of supervised release by Judge Raymond P. Moore.
Throughout the sentencing trial, Moore expressed harsh criticism of Holzer´s previous statements to undercover FBI agents and social media accounts – describing Holzer’s life as filled with violent and hateful imagery.
‘It is one of the most vulgar, aggressive, evil crimes that can be committed against an entire group of persons,’ Moore said.
Holzer was arrested Nov. 1, 2019, after receiving two phony pipe bombs and 14 sticks of dynamite from undercover FBI agents that he planned to use at the Temple Emanuel.
