Two OR Neo-Nazis Indicted On Hate Crime Charge For WA Assault

(Seattle, WA) -- Two Oregon men are among four self-described neo-Nazi skinheads facing federal hate crime charges in connection to an assault at a bar in Washington state. The U.S. Attorney's Office says a grand jury in Seattle indicted 38-year-old Randy Smith of Eugene and 24-year-old Daniel Delbert Dorson of Corvallis late last week. Also indicted were 43-year-old Jason Stanley of Boise, Idaho and 44-year-old Jason Desimas of Tacoma, Washington. The four are accused of assaulting a DJ at The Rec Room Bar & Grill in Lynnwood, Washington in December of 2018 after he refused to change the music he was playing. Court documents say the men "willfully caused bodily injury" to the DJ and two other men because of the victim's "actual and perceived race." The suspects were allegedly celebrating so-called "Martyrs Day" marking the death of white supremacist Robert Jay Matthews.
