Two Alleged N.J. White Supremacists Sentenced in New Year’s Eve 2011 Hate Crime
Two members of the “Aryan Terror Brigade” white supremacist group were sentenced to prison today for beating up Middle Eastern men on New Year’s Eve 2011 after drinking alcohol and listening to white supremacist music at what authorities have described as a “meet and greet” gathering for skinheads.
U.S. District Judge Joel A. Pisano, in Trenton, sentenced Michal Gunar, 29, of East Windsor, to 33 months in prison, authorities said. Gunar had previously pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit a hate crime assault and the commission of a hate crime assault, said U.S. Attorney Paul Fishman.
Pisano also sentenced Kyle Powell, 24, of West Collingswood, to 15 months in prison, authorities said. Powell had pleaded guilty in the attack to conspiracy to commit a hate crime assault.
Authorities, citing case documents and statements made in court proceedings, said Gunar had admitted to attending a New Year’s Eve “meet and greet” white supremacist event on Dec. 31, 2011 in East Brunswick.
