Roanoke neo-Nazi Bill White has been convicted by a jury of four of seven federal charges of making threats, reports WDBJ .
Although various alleged victims testified they were in fear of their lives from White’s menacing messages, White’s lawyers argued his comments were protected by the First Amendment. White was acquitted of similar charges in Chicago.
Senior U.S. District Judge James Turk presided over White’s jury trial this week in Roanoke.
