American Gets 7 Months for Participation in Toronto G20 Rioting

Yesterday, Richard Dean Morano of Lackawaxen, Penn was sentenced to 7 months in jail for his participation in the black bloc that rioted in Toronto at the G20 summit in June 2010. He was also ordered to pay $3,500 in restitution and is banned from Toronto for two years.

In a letter presented to court in January, Morano apologized for his “disgraceful actions.”

“Although at the time I never meant to hurt, intimidate or scare anyone at the protest, I realize now my actions did precisely that,” he wrote. “My thoughtless and selfish actions created a black mark on the image of Toronto.”20100626-g20_protest_166
