How to Become a Bounty Hunter



Aryan Nations Leader Who Appeared on Jerry Springer Show Sentenced in Fraud Case

An Aryan Nations leader of  fleeting TV fame was sentenced Wednesday for taking more money than he was legally entitled to from a government he despised, the Associated Press reports.

August Kreis III, who appeared multiple times on the Jerry Springer show and in a 2005 interview on CNN called al-Qaeda fellow freedom fighters in the war against Jews and the American government, was sentenced to six months in prison that he’d already served,  plus six months of home arrest and two years of probation in a Columbia, S.C. U.S.  District Court on Wednesday. Kreis was also ordered to pay back the nearly $193,000 he was said to have improperly received in veteran benefits.

Kreis served nine months with the Navy in Vietnam before being discharged for not being fit for service, which made him eligible for benefits, according to AP.

Kreis was a High School dropout who  joined the Ku Klux Klan in New Jersey in the late 70s before working his way up the ranks of several white supremacist groups and gaining media attention through the years. “Your relatives — weren’t they all turned into soap or lampshades?” he told the Jewish television host Jerry Springer during a 1995 show. “I’m looking for one of those lampshades,” he said.

At sentencing he appeared similarly hateful. “I don’t preach to hurt anybody, except the Jews, and I’ll keep doing that,” he said in court. “But that’s my First Amendment rights. As long as I obey God’s laws, I don’t care about anything else.”
