FORT WORTH, Texas – A 34-year-old man has been sentenced to 14 months in federal prison after confessing to vandalizing a suburban Dallas-Fort Worth mosque last year.

Henry Clay Glaspell of Arlington pleaded guilty in February to a hate-crime count of destroying religious property. U.S. District Judge Terry Means of Fort Worth sentenced him Monday for setting fire to playground equipment at the Dar El-Eman Islamic Center in south Arlington in July 2010.

Tarrant County Muslim community spokesman Jamal Qaddura has said a surveillance video showed Glaspell spray-painting obscene graffiti and setting fire to the wooden playground equipment last July.

He could have been sentenced to up to 20 years in federal prison. Means ordered Glaspell to report to begin serving his sentence Nov. 21.

  1. I can’t remember anyone getting a sentence like this for vandalizing a synagogue of which there are many more incidents. Why the double standard , yet again when it comes to islam?

  2. Gee – isn’t this freedom of speech?

    Given the uptick of violence again mosques and Muslims, why don’t we see more arrests and convictions?

    Or is this just a new form of “freedom of speech?”
