Anton Nathaniel Redding, 24, the suspect in the vandalism that took place at Nessah Synagogue in Beverly Hills, was arraigned on Dec. 23 in Los Angeles Superior Court. Redding entered a “not guilty” plea to charges stemming from the Dec. 14 incident. Redding remains in custody, with bail set at $250,000.
Originally from Millersville, Pennsylvania, Redding was arrested last week after investigators tracked him to Hawaii. He was charged with Vandalism of a Religious Property and Commercial Burglary (594.3(a) and 459 of the California Penal Code). The criminal complaint against Redding also includes a penalty enhancement for a Hate Crime under 422.75(a) of the California Penal Code. If convicted as charged, Redding faces a possible maximum sentence of six years in state prison.
