A white Mississippi man received an 11-year prison sentence Tuesday for his part in burning a cross near the home of an African American family.

Louie Bernard Revette, 38, was sentenced by U.S. District Judge Keith Starrett in Hattiesburg, the Justice Department said.

Revette pleaded guilty in April to one count each of interference with housing rights, which is a federal civil rights violation, and of using fire during the commission of a federal felony. https://bcnn1wp.wordpress.com/2019/09/10/mississippi-man-sentenced-to-11-years-in-prison-for-burning-cross-near-black-familys-home/
