Oregon: Saraya Gardner, 23, was found guilty of obstruction of justice and faces up to 20 years in prison for her involvement in an anti-gay attack on a couple walking their pink poodle.
Her husband, 23-year-old George Mason Jr, allegedly attack the couple, David Beltier, 26 and his boyfriend Jeremy Mark, striking Beltier with a crowbar and spewing homophobic slurs. ( I say allegedly because Mason has not been convicted yet. His trial does not start until this week)
After the attack, according to KATU, he said he was lucky to be alive.
Since her husband was accused, Gardner repeatedly changed her story in talking with Hillsboro police as reported by Oregon Live. She misled officers, who were searching for her husband, by telling them he was inside a Target store when she he was not there. Her attorney Thomas Coan agreed that Gardner had lied to police in order to keep her husband out of jail and could not live without him.
Coan wondered if the prosecutors’ playback of jail phone calls and recounting of the homophobic slurs could have prejudiced the jury….Jee, Ya think?
Gardner will be sentenced May 12.
If you are that much of an ignorant low life scumbag that you have to attack two people just because they are gay and walking a dog, please do society a favor and jump. And take your cohorts with you. I hope these two get the max.
What an effing beast.
