For some people stuck in a certain era, public acts of hate never go out of style.

Enter Joshua  James Moro, 23, who has been indicted in connection with a 2008 cross-burning in Louisiana near the home of an interracial couple, the Justice Department said.

Moro faces a  charge of conspiring to interfere with another person’s civil rights in the incident that took place in Athens, La. He was arrested Wednesday on an indictment that was issued April 28. Authorities said his co-conspirator and cousin Daniel Earl Danforth was convicted in the incident in January.

Authorities said that at Danforth’s trial evidence surfaced that Danforth and others “built a cross out of small pine trees and transported the cross to an area adjacent to the victims’ homes, where they set it on fire in order to intimidate the interracial couple.”

The U.S. Attorney’s Office said This case was investigated by the FBI and is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Mary J. Mudrick for the Western District of Louisiana and Trial Attorney Erin Aslan from the Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division.
