Synagogue Attacks SACRAMENTO, Calif. (Reuters) - Two white supremacist brothers were sentenced to lengthy prison terms and ordered to pay more than $1 million in damages on Friday for setting arson fires at three Sacramento synagogues and a building housing an abortion clinic in 1999. Benjamin Matthew Williams, 33, was sentenced to 30 years in prison. His brother, James Tyler Williams, 31, was sentenced to 21 years behind bars. The brothers, who face separate murder trials and possible death sentences on charges that they gunned down a gay couple outside Redding, 220 miles north of San Francisco in 1999, pleaded guilty to the Sacramento arson attacks in a plea deal with prosecutors in September. Along with their prison terms, the Williams brothers were ordered to pay restitution of $1,001,255 to the synagogues and clinic they attacked. "The lengthy prison sentences imposed today should send this message to those who disseminate ideologies of hatred: this society will not tolerate violence perpetrated in the name of hate," U.S. Attorney John K. Vincent said in a statement. Prosecutors said the Williams brothers went on their arson rampage "to intimidate, terrorize and harm Jews, providers of reproductive health services and other groups of persons whom the defendants regarded as inferior or undesirable." Three temples -- Congregation Beth Shalom, Congregation B'nai Israel and the Knesset Israel Torah Center -- were hit by fire on June 18, 1999. The attacks destroyed books and caused about $1 million damage. On July 2, 1999, arson hit a Sacramento medical building that houses the Choice Medical Group clinic. Both men have been described by investigators as holding extreme right-wing, anti-gay and anti-Semitic views.
