New trial date set for woman charged with burglary at mosque
PHOENIX (AP) — A new trial date has been set for a woman who was captured on video making derogatory comments about Muslims at a Tempe mosque.
Tahnee Gonzales’ trial was moved to April 25 at the request of a prosecutor who said lawyers negotiating to settle the case.
Gonzales pleaded not guilty to burglary and other charges stemming from her March 4 trip to the mosque with an adult friend and three children.
Gonzales’ friend pleaded guilty to criminal damage for taking down announcements posted in the mosque’s members-only courtyard.
The video shows Gonzales starting a shouting match with a Muslim man after he walked out of the mosque.
Gonzales faces charges of permitting life, health and morals of a minor to be imperiled by neglect, abuse or immoral associations.
