It seems punching a White Nationalist only costs 1 dollar.

I’m CJ Rogers and today is Sunday, September 9th.

Welcome to WUVA NOW. A quick and easy way to stay updated on what’s happening in Charlottesville. Make sure to check back
every day for a new episode.

One year after the Unite the Right rally, Jeffery Winder, a citizen of Charlottesville, was fined 1 dollar for punching Jason Kessler, an organizer of the rally. The original assault took place the day after Heather Heyer’s death during a press conference downtown. Earlier this year, Winder was found guilty of misdemeanor assault and could have faced a maximum sentence of one year in jail and a $2500 fine. After the being charged, Winder appealed. This Tuesday, the jury decided he was still guilty but was only to pay a fine of $1.
