HILLSBORO, Ore. — A Washington County man has been found guilty of committing a bias crime.
Sean Michel-White was welcomed into the ISKCON Temple in Hillsboro last August, but became aggressive when asked to put on a mask.
He knocked over statues, hit two members of the congregation and bit them.
He was eventually subdued by community members until police arrived.
He told officers he was a Hindu God and that members of the temple weren’t practicing their faith correctly.
As part of his sentence, Michel-white must undergo mental health treatment.
