Court Upholds Neo-Nazis’ Convictions

February 17, 1998

STOCKHOLM, Sweden (AP) _ An appeals court upheld Tuesday the conviction of two American neo-Nazis who had been jailed for violating Sweden’s hate laws.

Shawn Sugg of Otter Lake, Mich., and Eric Dobbs, a Swedish resident from San Diego, were among four Americans arrested at a neo-Nazi concert in suburban Stockholm in early January.

All were convicted of violating the hate law by giving the Nazi ``Sieg Heil″ salute and were jailed for one month. They were released in early February.

One of the other two dropped an appeal attempt and the court declined to hear the appeal of the fourth, Danielle Reda, 26, of Royal Oak, Mich., because she would not appear in court.

Sugg is a member of the ``white power″ band Max Resist, which played at the concert.
