Two Men Admit to NJ Cross Burning
Two men have admitted to roles in burning a wooden cross in rural central New Jersey last year.
Burlington County officials say Daniels Enders of Bass River and Nicolas Comis of Tuckerton pleaded guilty to bias intimidation in the February 2011 cross burning in Bass River.
It happened about 700 feet from where a black family lived. Officials have never said whether the family was targeted.
Both are 22 and both face 364 days in jail. But Enders can avoid jail time if he completes a drug-treatment program.
A third man, 21-year-old Christopher Hurrell previously pleaded guilty. He could have avoided jail time by completed a drug treatment program, but he violated its rules and is in prison.
