White Supremacists Plead Guilty

Five people who police say were white supremacists have pleaded guilty to assault charges.

The charges came after a Dutch national said he was kidnapped, assaulted and had his head shaved back in January.

Greenville police arrested the group in February during the investigation into arsons at two churches. Police say it turned out the five had nothing to do with the fires.

Pleading guilty were Martin Driver, Jr., Michael Hemby, Dustin Fricke, Tiffany Maxwell and Albert O'Neal.

Fricke was sentenced to 17-30 months in prison, Driver will have to serve 5 months in jail, while the rest received suspended sentences and probation.
