Biden DOJ Won't Punish Trans Vandal Who Assaulted Church Worker


The Justice Department is pursuing no jail time for a transgender person who admitted to assaulting a church worker, vandalizing a Catholic church with profane graffiti, smashing its glass, and damaging a statute of the Virgin Mary in Washington state last June.

In the plea agreement for Maeve Nota, 31, the DOJ recommended zero jail time for the perpetrator, according to a Fox News Digital report.

As CBN News reported in June 2022, Nota was arrested after destroying one entrance to a building, shattering a door in the parish hall, and spray-painting more than a dozen places on walls throughout the church's campus, messages too profane to print here.

In addition, Nota attacked a church employee and hit a police car with a backpack crammed full of paint cans.

Nota was captured on video repeatedly throwing a rock at a glass door inside a pastoral office, before kicking and punching in the glass, KCPQ-TV reported at the time.

The outlet also reported a woman who was praying inside the building tried to talk to the trans man, before locking herself inside as the attacker continued to spray-paint the rock wall outside the building.

The suspect later surrendered to police, but not before assaulting a church worker and swinging his backpack full of paint cans, and hitting a police car with it.

Bellevue Police Captain Darryl McKinney told KCPQ at the time that the damage would fall under a hate crime statute.

March CM CoverInstead, a plea agreement was made between the Department of Justice, Nota, and his attorney. It shows that the DOJ will recommend no jail time and three years of probation during sentencing on June 2, Fox reported.

The way the DOJ treated Nota is much different than the aggressive tactics and charges it used against pro-life activist Mark Houck. He had been in a minor altercation with a Planned Parenthood volunteer who was harassing Houck's little boy near a Philadelphia abortion clinic last year.
