Accused White Supremacist Pleads Guilty To Child Porn Charges
January 14, 2008
Accused white supremacist leader, Kevin Strom, pleaded guilty Monday morning to child pornography charges after striking a plea deal.
Under the agreement, Strom could face up to ten years in prison and a $250,000 fine. Twice Monday morning Strom lashed out against the media. In the middle of entering his agreement, he attacked the media, saying “he was falsely portrayed as a neo Nazi and white supremacist.”
Strom added that calling him a white supremacist would be the same as calling the Dalai Lama a Tibetan Supremacist. He went on to say as a result of that label he has even received death threats while in prison.
We talked with his attorney who elaborated on the remarks.
“Mr. Strom disagrees with the characterizations of himself as either a white supremacist or a neo Nazi, he doesn’t feel like those descriptions accurately describe his beliefs and he’s always sort of maintained that those descriptions adequately describe what he believes in” said Strom’s attorney Andrea Harris.
Strom is referring to the coverage of his trial back in October. He was accused of being the leader of a white supremacist group, facing charges of federal coercion and obstruction charges, however, that case was thrown out after lack of evidence.
Strom is now awaiting sentencing which has been scheduled for April 21st.
