Justice Department asks no jail time for church vandal

CWN Editor's Note: The Department of Justice has recommended no prison sentence for Maeve Nota, who faces a variety of criminal charges for vandalizing a Catholic church in Bellevue, Washington.

Nota, a transgender activist, destroyed a statue, assaulted a parishioner, and sprayed obscene graffiti around the church, causing damage that was estimated at $10,000.

However the Biden administration is offering a plea agreement that would call for probation, with no prison sentence. That offer contrasts with the same department’s bid to punish Mark Houck, a pro-life activist, with an 11-year prison term for pushing a pro-abortion activist in a confrontation outside an abortion clinic.
