Rockwell Sentenced in Chicago to Three Months Jail and $500 Fine

George Rockwell, leader of the American Nazi Party, was today sentenced to three months in jail and fined $500, the heaviest penalty yet imposed on the Nazi leader.

The sentence today followed a finding of guilty yesterday by a jury after jurors heard evidence of Rockwell’s disorderly conduct, criminal trespassing, and obstructing a peace officer. The sentence imposed on the Nazi agitator resulted from his role in creating disturbances during last summer’s racial tensions in Chicago.
