Purported leader of neo-Nazi group sentenced to 7 years for Seattle-area threats, intimidation | The Seattle Times

The purported leader of the violent neo-Nazi group the Atomwaffen Division was sentenced to seven years in federal prison on Tuesday for conspiring to threaten Jews, Black people and journalists in Washington and two other states.

Kaleb Cole, 25, was convicted in September of five federal felonies, including conspiracy, three counts of mailing threatening communications and one count of interfering with a federally protected activity.

Cole and three other purported members of Atomwaffen — German for “atomic weapon” — were charged by federal prosecutors last year for mounting a campaign of fear and intimidation against at least one Seattle television journalist and two local activists with the Anti-Defamation League, as well as activists and journalists in Florida and Arizona.
