Racist Who Got KO’d Enters Plea

Item: Man to be sentenced for racial incident: Abbey enters Alford plea to felony charge of malicious harassment/David Cole, Coeur d'Alene Press

More Info: Self-proclaimed skinhead Daren C. Abbey got knocked out with one punch by a black man on July 3, after telling the man he didn't belong inside J.D.'s bar or in Bayview at all because of the color of his skin. On Thursday in 1st District Court, Abbey, 28, agreed to be sentenced on a felony charge of malicious harassment from the short-lived confrontation with Marlon L. Baker, who at the time of the incident was wearing a Spokane Boxing Club Champion T-shirt. By entering an Alford plea, Abbey avoids admitting guilt, but acknowledges prosecutors have enough evidence to likely convict him at trial.

Question: What sentence would you impose on Abbey?
