❝ A man convicted of federal hate crime charges for deliberately slamming his car into a crowd of anti-racism protesters during a white nationalist rally in Virginia has been sentenced to life in prison on state charges.

James Alex Fields Jr, 22, was sentenced on Monday to life plus 419 years for killing one person and injuring dozens during the “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville on 12 August 2017.

❝ Fields, of Maumee, Ohio, was sentenced last month to life in prison on 29 federal hate crime charges. The state sentence is mainly symbolic since he has already received a life sentence on federal charges…

Throw away the key! For a change, the courts actually came through on that suggestion.
