Former Organist Won’t Face Jail Time For Vandalizing Brown Co. Church

From Indiana-

The former organist at a Brown County church will not face jail time for vandalizing the building following the 2016 presidential election.
A judge sentenced George “Nathan” Stang to 180 days in jail Tuesday, but suspended the sentence so he won’t serve any of that time. He will instead be on probation for more than one year and must complete 300 hours of community service. The judge stipulated Stang must complete at least 20 hours of community service per month.
Stang admitted to spray painting “Heil Trump”, a swastika and an anti-gay slur on the outside walls of St. David’s Episcopal Church in November 2016. At the time, he told police he was trying to mobilize a movement, after being disappointed in the outcome of the election.
Several members of the church testified during Stang’s sentencing hearing Tuesday, asking the judge not to give him jail time.
Jim Huber says he was shocked when he learned Stang was responsible for the vandalism, but impressed by how he’s handled the aftermath.
