HAGERSTOWN, Md. (AP) -
A former western Maryland Ku Klux Klan leader has been found innocent of sexual assault. But Gordon Young may end up in the news again -- for resuming his white supremacist activities.
Young disbanded a group called the World Knights of the Ku Klux Klan in November after his adopted sister accused him of assault.
He said then that he planned to become state leader of the National Socialist Movement, a neo-Nazi group based in Minneapolis.
That group severed its ties to Young after the charges were announced in December.
Tim Bishop, a National Socialist Movement official, said today that Young will be eligible to apply for reinstatement now that he's been acquitted.
Young declined to comment when reached today by The Associated Press.
