Mizzou student accused of hate crime pleads guilty to lesser charge

COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) – A University of Missouri student accused of a hate crime has pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor.

Bradley M. Becker was originally charged with second-degree property damage motivated by discrimination, a felony, after vandalizing a residence hall in April.

He pleaded guilty Tuesday to second-degree property damage and was given a suspended 90-day jail sentence. He was placed on two years’ unsupervised probation.

The Columbia Daily Tribune reports a swastika and symbol for the “Illuminati” were discovered in a Mark Twain Residence Hall stairwell in April. Two days later, a swastika and the words “You have been warned” were found in the same spot.

According to a probable cause statement, Becker said he committed the vandalism “in the spur of the moment” and was inspired by YouTube videos.
