Man Convicted Of Desecrating Olney Synagogue

OLNEY, Md. (AP) — A Montgomery County man has been convicted of desecrating an area synagogue with spray paint last year.

Ian Baron, 23, was found guilty Wednesday of four counts of vandalism and one count of defacing religious property.

Authorities say anti-Semitic graffiti was spray-painted on the exterior walls, retaining walls, light posts and parking lot of B’Nai Shalom Synagogue in Olney in July.

Prosecutors say Baron will be sentenced on May 6. He faces more than six years in prison.

    YES,he’s a racist punk.
    However,as a tax payer,I can’t afford for him to sit on his duff,eat and fart for six years.
    Instead, I suggest the punk be forced to clean the Synagogue and the streets for six years,at HIS expense

    6 years for vandalism? What garbage.

    You PUNK!!!!!!!!

  5. Jason Robinson says:

    I agree with Doug on this. The perpitrator should have to clean the synagogue, plus clean the streets of downtown Baltimore for six years. His punishment would kill two birds with one stone that way.

    Bad stuff, a real no no. Such hatred will not be tolerated I hope by the sentencing Judge. Let his clean all spray painted walls for the next six years with any monies he earns going to the respective synagogues & building owners.

    Make him do the full time. When he comes out make him do community service for another couple of years (and I don’t mean just 30 or 40 hours). How would he like his property or property of any of his family memebers, to be vandalized in like fashion? You really have to feel some pity for people who have so much hate and disrespect in their hears and minds.

  8. aDCBeast says:

    Spray paint can be PAINTED OVER cheaply.

    6 years is ridiculous.

    the comments about doing the full 6 years and hard labor are made by internet idiots. People who would rather put smalltime vandals in jail rather than violent criminals.

    Nice going you geniuses !
