Man Arrested For Bias Crime

PORTLAND, Ore. — Multnomah County DA Mike Schmidt announced on Friday, Jarl Judson Rockhill has been arraigned on charges related to an alleged bias crime on April 23.

The 35-year old Rockhill is accused of placing a NAZI propaganda sticker on a fence outside the Immigrant and Refugee Community Organization in East Portland.
