White Supremacist Accused of More Online Threats

Indicted Virginian also threatened author Elie Wiesel

A white supremacist indicted this week for soliciting harm on the Internet against a Chicago juror has used the Web to seek violence more than once, according to federal authorities.

William White was arrested last week in Virginia and was accused of seeking injury to the foreman of a federal jury that convicted white supremacist Matthew Hale in 2004.

White created and maintained a website which he used to make derogatory comments and disclose personal information about Juror A, including a name, photo, home address, and phone numbers. He also allegedly used the site to solicit another person to injure the juror.

According to authorities, another posting on the same website called for violence against a Canadian civil rights leader, saying he "should be drug out into the street and shot."

The supremacist's site also listed three supposed home addresses for Holocaust survivor and author Elie Wiesel.

White remains in federal custody in Virginia pending transfer to Chicago to face prosecution. If convicted, he faces a maximum penalty of 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.
