  • A white supremacist who made national headlines by terrorizing a small North Dakota town is being sentenced, about two years after moving to Leith (leeth) with hopes of establishing an all-white enclave.
    Craig Cobb's dreams fizzled. He's been jailed since mid-November after his arrest on seven felony terrorizing counts for allegedly scaring townsfolk while patrolling Leith with a gun.
    Cobb was facing up to 30 years in prison on the original charges. In late February he reached an agreement with prosecutor Todd Schwarz that called for him to plead guilty to lesser charges and in return get probation rather than prison.
    But some Leith residents want Cobb behind bars. Judge David Reich ordered a presentence investigation before accepting the plea deal, and is now set to decide Cobb's fate.
