PRINCE GEORGE, B.C. -A 31-year-old man has been sentenced to four months in
jail after being found guilty of hate crimes. Keith Noble was convicted on
Monday of wilfully promoting hatred against identifiable groups, namely Jews,
blacks, homosexuals, non-whites and persons of mixed race or ethnic origin. The
verdict came in B.C. Supreme Court in Prince George after a two-week trial.
RCMP said the investigation into Noble's activities began on Dec. 21, 2004,
when the force's B.C. Hate Crime Team received a complaint about a Web site
that allegedly targeted several identifiable groups. "The content of Mr.
Noble's Internet postings made it clear that he is motivated by anti-Semitism,"
said Len Rudner, a spokesman from the Canadian Jewish Congree who provided
expert testimony at Noble's trial.
