Man pled guilty to Madera Mosque vandalism

Saturday, October 08, 2011

A Madera man pled guilty in federal court Friday, to civil rights violations in connection with arson at Planned Parenthood and vandalism of a Madera Mosque.

When this booking photo was taken earlier this year, 38-year-old Donny Mower had just been arrested by Madera Police for drunk driving. He was injured when he crashed his car.

During his plea, Mower admitted to throwing a Molotov cocktail through the ground-floor window of the Madera Planned Parenthood clinic. The fire forced the clinic to close for two days. He also admitted to throwing a brick at a Madera Mosque, and leaving signs that read, "Wake up America, the enemy is here."

When he is sentenced in January, Mowers could face up to 20-years in prison, and a fine of up to $250 thousand on the arson charge.
