Two anti-police rioters who participated in a Black Lives Matter protest-turned-riot last summer are expected to be hit with prison sentences of about two years for their participation in the city destruction, including setting fire to two vehicles belonging to the city and state.
Rioters MacKenzie Drechsler and Shakell Sanks admitted on Monday to “their roles in the events that unfolded after a George Floyd/Black Lives Matter rally and march devolved into chaos outside of the Public Safety Building on Exchange Boulevard” in Rochester, New York, according to the Democrat & Chronicle.
One of the destroyed vehicles, a Ford Focus, belonged to the city of Rochester’s Family Crisis Intervention Team, and was marked as such. The other vehicle belonged to the New York state attorney general’s Office.
In addition to arson, Drechsler admitted to looting and committing property damage throughout the city, the D&C noted.
The criminals’ are expected to be hit with about two-year sentences, though the judge can lower or add to
