A man who vandalized a Florida mosque and left a slab of raw bacon on its doorstep has been sentenced to 15 years in prison on a hate crime conviction.

Michael Wolfe, 37, pleaded guilty on Tuesday to criminal mischief to a place of worship, a case considered a felony hate crime, Todd Brown the spokesman for Florida’s 18th Judicial District said.

CCTV footage from January 2, 2016 captured a man with a shaved head wearing camouflage clothing smashing windows, cameras and lights with a machete knife at the mosque in Titusville, near Cape Canaveral.

Hate groups have been using pork products to desecrate mosques in the USA due to the Muslim faith’s prohibition of them, according to the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR).

Prosecutors said the sentence of 15 years in prison followed by 15 years probation was reached after discussions between the Islamic Society of Central Florida and Titusville police, report USA Today.

Brown said:

He entered a plea deal and plead guilty to vandalizing the mosque itself with hate crime enhancement, making it a felony.

He waived his right to a pre-sentencing investigation.

According to Brevard County records, Wolfe has had multiple run-ins with the police, including convictions in burglary of an unoccupied dwelling and grand theft in 2004.

He has the option of filing an appeal within 30 days of his conviction.

  • BOoBOo

    What a load of Crap…. This has to be the stupidest thing I have ever heard… Mulims get a slap on the wrists for beheading someone in the name of their cult.

    A murderer in my city got less time than that, he murdered a police officer when they released his punk ass 2 summers back. Then theres the rapist POS who strangled a woman to death, prosecutors offered him a plea deal for 18 years and they didnt even make him plead guilty they allowed the scum to plead no contest. Fuck the justice system!

  • Josh Gordon

    Oh and dont forget the illegal fuck who was found not guilty for shooting a woman who died in fathers arms even though the scum was holding the firearm that the bullet came from that killed that poor woman.

  • Tingle

    Why didn’t he use his white privilege card? smh.

  • John Monitor

    He’ll get less on appeal. They want to make an example of him but a decent judge will know the sentence is not right. You’d get less for murder.

  • Pauly Incorrect

    So theoretically speaking, he would have received the same sentence for completely blowing the place up…What a waste.

  • Lynda Gutierrez

    BOoBOo – Please cite when anyone has gotten a slap on the wrist for beheading someone in the name of Islam. And, BTW, Pauly, hate crimes have high penalties for a reason — it’s supposed to discourage bigoted assholes like the bacon guy from doing hateful things. Sadly, most bigots are too stupid to remember this and do it anyway.

    Yet another outrage in an age of outrage. If you’re an f’n illegal, you can murder innocent people and walk free. This guy gets 15 years for giving the muslims a small taste of their own medicine.
