I’m very

pleased. Sometimes you gotta take a stand for what is right!

Iowa prosecutors dropped hate crime charges against Michael Cassidy on Friday in exchange for a guilty plea to a less severe misdemeanor charge, The Sentinel reports.

Cassidy is the Christian US military veteran who beheaded a statue of Satan inside the Iowa Capitol last year.

Yes, there is still a misdemeanor charge, and that is fine. But the felony charge with a long prison sentence was always totally bogus!

“It is because of the people that came to his aid and an outstanding legal team that we were able to back the prosecutors into a corner and get this resolution,” Younts said. “Instead of a felony hate crime and jail time, Cassidy received deferred judgment for damage to property and the conviction will be expunged once the court process is complete. Forcing the prosecutors to drop the hate crime is a huge victory for Cassidy and for religious freedom.”
