Bill White found guilty again, thanks to Phillip Anderson cooperating

Phil Anderson, a former ANSWP member, turned over letters Bill White wrote him from prison urging him and others not to harm a federal judge. The prosecution used the letters to help convict him. Could be facing 3 more years in prison.

A federal jury in Chicago took only a few hours to convict Roanoke Neo-Nazi Bill White on a charge related to threatening the former jury foreman.

No sentencing date has been set.

White's attorney, Nishay Sanan, said his next move will be to petition a judge to have a bond hearing on either January 18th or a few days afterward.

White will have served all the prison time required after his Roanoke convictions in late December 2009.

With the exception of a few days when White was released on bond in the late summer of 2009, White has been in prison since October 2008.

While White could receive a maximum sentence of 10 years in prison, Sanan expects federal prosecutors to ask for at least three years.

Sanan said he will argue at sentencing that White's time served should count toward his Chicago punishment.

Federal prosecutors said they believe White is exactly where he belongs--- in prison, and they intend to keep him there.

Prosecutors said two letters White wrote from Roanoke City Jail a few days after his initial incarceration helped prove their case.

White wrote to members of his American National Socialist Workers' Party, or ANSWP, urging them to reach out to the group's Chicago connections to make sure no one hurt the former jury foreman.

Prosecutors said the letters were proof White knew someone could act out on a post he wrote on his former website,, which prosecutors said essentially encouraged readers to harm the juror, the victim in this case.
