Longmont Man Sentenced to Probation for Harassing Hispanic Family at Apartment Pool
A Longmont man accused of harassing a Hispanic family at an apartment complex pool in July was sentenced to probation Wednesday morning.
Kevin McMahon, 53, pleaded guilty to harassment, a Class 3 misdemeanor, at his scheduled arraignment Wednesday in Boulder County District Court.
The Boulder County District Attorney dismissed his five other charges, which included felony menacing, two counts of harassment and two counts of committing a bias-motivated crime.
McMahon was sentenced to one year of unsupervised probation and charged a number of court fines, according to court records.
Longmont police said on June 13, McMahon was angry that a Hispanic family was using the pool at Fox Ridge Apartments . He began screaming “wetback” and saying, “When Trump builds the wall, they are gonna need to know how to swim back home.”
McMahon also allegedly said he was going to get a gun from his apartment and returned with his hand wrapped in a towel, walking around the pool as though he was armed.
