William A. White

ROANOKE, Va. — A Virginia white supremacist convicted of making threats and intimidation will spend another three months.

The Roanoke Times reports that William A. White was resentenced Tuesday in U.S. District Court in Roanoke.

White received a two-and-a-half-year sentence in 2009. But a three-judge panel of the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ordered a new sentence earlier this year.

The court said U.S. District Court Judge James Turk didn’t apply the proper sentencing enhancement for targeting vulnerable victims.

The intimidation charge stemmed from a letter White addressed to the young children of an apartment resident who was suing her landlord for discrimination.

White completed his original sentence. But he received another 10 months behind bars in September for violating his supervised release by traveling to Mexico.
