Sofian Khan

For breaking into a mosque and leaving a slice of bacon, a man was sentenced to 15 years in prison.
The accused is Michael Wolfe from Titusville in Florida. He was pleaded guilty to the break-in at the Islamic Society of Central Florida Masjid Al-Munin Mosque in January 2016. CCTV footage caught the 37 years old smashing windows and lights with a machete and then left a bacon by the front door.Wolfe pleaded guilty to the criminal mischief of placing of worship with a hate crime enhancement on Tuesday, after a plea deal was arranged with the mosque and the police. Todd Brown, A spokesman for the State Attorney’s Office said, “He entered a plea deal and plead guilty to vandalising the mosque itself with hate crime enhancement, making it a felony. He waived his right to a pre-sentencing investigation.” Wolfe was also sentenced probation for a further 15 years after his release. State records suggest that Wolfe has numerous previous convictions for burglary.
