A group of tenants attacked in a letter from Roanoke white supremacist Bill White has won a jury verdict against White and his American National Socialist Workers Party in a federal civil trial. The jury awarded compensatory damages of $265,000 against White and $280,000 against the party on Aug. 27.
Based on a jury finding, the victims of White’s vitriol can attach his assets despite his bankruptcy, reports The Roanoke Times.
White is serving time for criminal convictions for sending threatening messages to various targets. He appears to own several rental properties in Roanoke, according to an online tax database.
