Man Linked to White Supremacist Group Pleads Guilty to Ohio Church Firebombing

The church was located in Chesterland, Ohio

A man allegedly connected to a white supremacist group has pleaded guilty to firebombing a church in Ohio to try to prevent it from hosting two drag shows planned for last April.

According to court documents, 20-year-old Aimenn Penny had made molotov cocktails before driving to the community church of Chesterland on 25 March this year. He threw two at the church, damaging the house of worship and a sign.

Authorities arrested Penny in March and charged him with two counts of arson and one of possessing an explosive device. He was also accused of obstructing the free exercise of religious beliefs – a federal hate crime.
