Over a long career, August Kreis III has been a white supremacist, a fringe Christian minister, a hater of Jews, a neo-Nazi and a Ku Klux Klan leader.
On Thursday, in a Lexington County courtroom, he became something else: a convicted child molester.
After a three-day trial, a Lexington County jury found Kreis, 61, guilty of one count of criminal sexual conduct involving a minor child and two counts of committing lewd acts on a child. Three young women testified during the trial.
Later Thursday, Circuit Court Judge Douet “Jack” Earley gave Kreis 50 years in prison — meaning he almost certainly will die behind bars.
However before right before hearing that sentence Kreis had a finally request for the people:
Just before sentencing, Kreis declared, “I will always hate the Jew. This government is run by an evil group of people, and please — vote for Trump!”
Wow, a Christian, racist, child molesting, Trump supporter.
I think that just about says it all, don't you?
