White Supremacist Pleads Guilty

Posted: Updated:

One of the white supremacists who carried guns through the town of Leith is out of prison.

Kynan Dutton agreed to testify against Craig Cobb if charges against him were reduced.

The state took him up on his offer.Kynan Dutton told Judge Donald Jorgensen that he just wants to get back to his family.

"I'm just eager to get home to my family, and to help support them. This has been rough on us all and I know I can do better for them as a free man than I can here incarcerated," Says Kynan Dutton.

After sitting in jail for two months, Dutton is free to go after he fills out paperwork at the Mercer County jail.

Dutton's lawyer Robert Quick and Grant County States attorney Todd Schwarz worked out the details of the plea agreement.

In the agreement, Dutton promises to give 'truthful statements' about the day he and Cobb walked the streets of Leith carrying guns.

"Mr. Dutton. you will then be available for, and provide testimony as requested by the Grant County State's attorney," says Jorgensen.

The agreement reduces the charges from seven counts of felony terrorizing ... to five counts of misdemeanor menacing charges and two counts of disorderly conduct.

Dutton pled guilt to all of the reduced charges.

"Do you understand the charge?"

"Yes, sir."

"How do you plead?"

"Not guilty, sir."

In addition to testifying against Cobb, Judge Jorgensen told Dutton he cannot have a gun and he must not have contact with the victims in Leith.

Dutton was convicted on one of the counts of menacing.

The sentences were deferred on the rest of the charges

As part of his sentence, Dutton cannot possess a gun for five years or he will be in violation of his probation and go back to jail.

Schwarz says that the one conviction will show up if Dutton ever applies for a gun permit, even after his probation is over.
