FARGO, N.D. (AP) — A man has been sentenced to six months in the Cass County Jail for participating in violent protests in downtown Fargo after the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis.
Califf McClain, of Wilmington, Delaware, pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit criminal mischief for his role in a clash between protesters and law enforcement officers on May 30.
Prosecutors say McClain threw rocks toward the police line and was among people who forced their way into a restaurant.
The man was reportedly seen trying to open a cash register, which had already been emptied.
East Central District Judge Wade Webb ordered McClain to pay $1,500 for damages and serve one year of probation after he’s released.
