Patriot Prayer member gets 3 days jail for riot conviction

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — A member of the far-right group Patriot Prayer caught on camera throwing a pepper spray can and slapping a woman after a protest in Portland, Oregon, has been sentenced to three days in jail. The Oregonian/OregonLive reports Multnomah County Circuit Judge Benjamin Souede Monday also sentenced Mackenzie Lewis to three years of probation. A jury previously found Lewis guilty of felony riot in the May 1, 2019, incident. Lewis was one of six men with far-right ties who were indicted by a grand jury reviewing the clash, which started after Lewis and the Patriot Prayer group approached anti-fascists who were gathered at a bar. Three of the men plead guilty to riot charges.
