COLLEGE PARK, Md. (AP) — Federal prosecutors on Thursday recommended a 10-month prison sentence followed by 3 years of supervised release for a man whose relatives reported concerns about his behavior and far-right extremist rhetoric after last year’s Pittsburgh synagogue massacre.
Jeffrey Clark Jr. pleaded guilty to a federal gun charge in July. He’s scheduled to be sentenced Sept. 13 by U.S. District Judge Timothy Kelly in Washington, D.C.
Clark, 30, of Washington, has been jailed since his arrest 10 months ago, and could be eligible for immediate release if Kelly imposes the sentence that prosecutors recommended in a court filing.
The FBI said Clark is a self-described white nationalist who followed Pittsburgh synagogue shooting suspect Robert Bowers
