CHICAGO – A federal judge on Wednesday sentenced a white supremacist from Virginia to 3½ years in prison for soliciting violence against the foreman of a jury on his extremist website.

U.S. District Judge Lynn Adelman sentenced William A. White to 42 months in prison. White was accused of posting the address, phone number and other personal details about a jury foreman in the 2004 trial of another white supremacist, Matthew Hale. The foreman’s jury convicted Hale of soliciting the murder of a federal judge. He is serving a 40-year sentence.

“No doubt the experience was extremely frightening for the juror,” said Adelman, of Milwaukee, who was assigned to preside over the case in Chicago.
