Tennessee Man Sentenced Over Plot To Attack Muslim Community

0

A former Congressional candidate from Tennessee has been sentenced to nearly 20 years in prison for plotting to burn down a mosque, a school and a cafeteria in upstate New York. Robert Doggart, 65, was sentenced on Wednesday in U.S. District Court in Chattanooga, where he was convicted in February of trying to recruit people to commit arson and violate civil rights. Doggart was arrested by FBI agents in April 2015 after saying in wiretapped telephone calls that he planned to recruit a militia and travel to Islamberg, a rural town that is home to a small Muslim community in Hancock, New York. While there, he intended to “carry out an armed attack” that included burning down a mosque or “blowing it up.” Doggart said on one of the recorded calls that he didn’t “want to have to kill children, but there’s always collateral damage.”
