Va. white supremacist gets 30 months for online threats

A Roanoke white supremacist has been sentenced to 30 months in prison for making online threats.

William A. White was sentenced Wednesday in federal court. He was convicted in December of intimidating a group of apartment-complex residents in Virginia Beach, and threatening a university administrator in Delaware and a bank employee in Missouri.

A fourth count was dismissed in February.

White faced a maximum of 35 years in prison, but a spokesman for the U.S. attorney's office said federal sentencing guidelines called for a range of 24 months to 30 months.

The spokesman, Brian McGinn, said White will get credit for 18 months already served.
