Second N.S. brother to be sentenced for hate crime in cross-burning (Canada)

The second of two Nova Scotia brothers convicted of a hate crime for burning a cross on an interracial couple's lawn last winter will be sentenced today.

Justin Rehberg, 20, of Avondale was convicted last fall of inciting racial hatred and criminal harassment.

His 21-year-old brother, Nathan, was sentenced Monday to six months in jail, minus four months credit for time already served.

Prosecutor Darrell Carmichael said Monday he recommends a lesser sentence for the younger Rehberg.

Nathan Rehberg wept in court and apologized for setting a 2.5-metre wooden cross on fire last year outside the Poplar Grove home of Shayne Howe and Michelle Lyon.

Howe, who is black, and Lyon, who is white, testified they awoke in the middle of the night last Feb. 21 to the sight of a blazing cross on their lawn.

Howe said after Monday's sentencing that he accepted Rehberg's apology.
