Neo-Nazi leaders face conspiracy charges on both coasts
By MATTHEW BARAKAT and GENE JOHNSON
FALLS CHURCH, Va. (AP) - Five people who prosecutors say are the leaders of a neo-Nazi group have been arrested and charged in a pair of federal investigations. The charges in Virginia and Washington state include conspiracy to harass journalists, churches and a former Cabinet official with bomb threats and other forms of intimidation. Twenty-six-year-old John Denton of Montgomery, Texas, was arrested Wednesday and charged with a series of bomb threats made in Virginia. Prosecutors say Denton is a former leader of the neo-Nazi group Atomwaffen Division. In Seattle, prosecutors say they've charged four Atomwaffen members with cyberstalking and mailing threatening communications.
