A famous white supremacist and former Aryan Nation leader has been arrested in South Carolina for child molestation and showing pornography to a child. August Byron Kreis is a Christian Identity minister with a long history of white supremacy.
A man identified by a civil rights advocacy group as a “hot-tempered, longtime white supremacist and Christian Identity minister”, was arrested by Richland County deputies Tuesday and charged with sexually assaulting a child under the age of 12.
August Byron Kreis, 59, was officially charged in Richland County with second degree criminal sexual conduct and disseminating obscene material to a child. Kreis has also been charged with criminal sexual conduct in Lexington and Kershaw counties.
Kreis was arrested after the mother of the victim filed a report against him. Sheriff Leon Lott said a thorough investigation discovered Kreis had sexually assaulted the victim and provided obscene material for about three months.
Kreis has been pretty quiet for the last few years, but this will make some headlines.
