(Abdul–Rahman Oladimeji Bello, Headline USA) The Department of Justice recommended zero jail time for a radical abortion activist who admitted to vandalizing a Catholic church, destroying a statue of the Virgin Mary, assaulting a church worker and resisting arrest.
Fox News Digital reviewed the plea agreement showing the DOJ’s recommendation for the vandal, Maeve Nota, a 31-year-old trans person. The reports noted that this incident occurred at the St. Louise Catholic Church in Bellevue, Washington, after Roe v. Wade’s overturning in June 2022.
Mike Davis, founder of the Article III Project, said the recommendation contradicts the treatment pro-life protesters outside abortion clinics received.
“It is very clear that the Biden Justice Department has politicized and weaponized the FACE Act to go after pro-life Christians praying outside of abortion clinics, like Mark Houck, while turning a blind eye to violent felons terrorizing and badly damaging Catholic churches like Maeve Nota,” he stated.
“The Biden Justice Department tried to put Houck in prison for 11 years for defending his son while recommending no jail time for Nota after this deranged trans terrorist badly damaged a Catholic church, fought with the police, assaulted a church employee, and scared the hell out of a little old lady praying,” Davis added.
Nota reportedly damaged two glass doors by smashing them with rocks. He also sprayed the church walls with paints, leaving messages including, “F— Catholics,” “rot in your fake hell,” “kid groomers,” and “woman haters,” amongst others.
The report also noted that he sprayed a church staff member who tried to chase him away with his paint, and Nota smashed the police car with a backpack filled with spray cans before turning himself in.
Filings from early March revealed that Biden’s DOJ charged the trans vandal with destroying a religious party. According to the laws, this charge can carry up to a year in prison and $100,000 in fines.
However, a previously unreported plea agreement between the DOJ, the trans vandal and his attorney surfaced. This plea agreement revealed that the DOJ would recommend no jail time for Nota and three years of probation at his sentencing on June 2.
