San Diego jury convicts two Antifa militants of conspiracy to commit insurrection in connection with brutal attack on Trump supporters | The Gateway expert

A San Diego jury on Friday convicted two Antifa militants of felony conspiracy to riot in connection with a brutal 2021 attack on Trump supporters.

In 2022, a San Diego grand jury indicted 11 Antifa and BLM militants for attacking Trump supporters during a 2021 “Patriot March” rally in Pacific Beach.

In January 2021, a gang of Antifa terrorists attacked a small group of Trump supporters in San Diego, California.

Antifa goons attacked Trump supporters with pepper spray after a verbal confrontation escalated on the boardwalk in Pacific Beach.

According to the San Diego Grandstandthere was a heavy police presence on the promenade and police declared the gathering as 'unlawful' early in the afternoon of January 10, 2021.

Police arrested several violent protesters that day, and a San Diego grand jury indicted 11 defendants on Tuesday, the San Diego County District Attorney's Office said.

The indictment essentially names Antifa and alleges that the defendants are “all associated with Antifa” and have “used force, fear, and violence to advance their interests and suppress the interests of others.”

In 2022, the grand jury brought 29 felony charges, including conspiracy.

On Friday, a San Diego grand jury convicted Brian Cortez Lightfoot, 27, and Jeremy Jonathan White, 41, both of Los Angeles.

“We would like to thank the jury for their service and for reaching their just guilty verdicts on the two remaining defendants in the Antifa conspiracy case. This was a complex case in which eleven suspects were charged and now all convicted: nine by guilty pleas and two by jury verdict. The DA team has worked tirelessly on this case to ensure our community remains safe and the rule of law is upheld.” – San Diego County District Attorney Summer Stephan said.

CBS 8 reported:

Two men were convicted Friday of conspiring to commit a riot that stemmed from a 2021 Pacific Beach protest that turned violent. Prosecutors alleged that the men had joined other self-styled anti-fascists in plans to violently attack those on the opposite side of the political spectrum.

Brian Cortez Lightfoot, 27, and Jeremy Jonathan White, 41, both of the Los Angeles area, were charged along with nine others in connection with the Jan. 9, 2021 “Patriot March,” which culminated in fights and violence.

Lightfoot was also convicted by jurors of five counts of unlawful use of tear gas. The jury, which began its deliberations more than a week ago, also acquitted the men on one charge but stuck with numerous other charges of assault and unlawful use of tear gas.

Lightfoot and White will be sentenced late next month. Their nine co-defendants pleaded guilty to various charges prior to trial and some have already been sentenced to prison.
