The former Congressional candidate from Tennessee accused of trying to recruit people to burn down a Muslim community in Delaware County is to spend nearly 20 years in prison.

65 year old Robert Doggart was sentenced this week after being convicted in February of a civil rights violation and solicitation to commit arson.  A Judge determined charges of threat to interstate commerce were invalid since Doggart did not personally make a threat to the residents of Islamberg in Hancock.

Doggart was accused of using the internet as well as telephone conversations to try to entice conspirators to go to the community to burn down the Mosque, school and other buildings and kill men, women and children.

Doggart ran for Congress in 2014 and garnered very few votes.
