Another sick member of ANTIFA is off the streets, and this time for a LONG time!
Recently, we brought you the story of David Campbell, who pled guilty to assult and got 18 months.
Today it’s Gage Halupowski and he gets nearly 6 years in prison!
Not sure even that is long enough, but it’s a start!
Look at what this sick bastard did:
Local Fox12 in Oregon confirmed the story:
A 24-year-old was sentenced to more than 5 years in prison for an assault in downtown Portland after a mass demonstration.
Multnomah County District Attorney said 24-year-old Gage Halupowski received a 70-month prison sentence on Friday after he pleaded guilty to assaulting a man in downtown Portland during a mass demonstration on June 29, 2019.
Halupowski changed his plea to one count of second-degree assault.
During the mass demonstration, law enforcement witnessed a disturbance that involved a person being chased by a group of individuals in the 500 block of Southwest Morrison Street. Many of the people chasing the victim had their faces either partially or fully concealed.
Somehow, the person being chased ended up on the ground and was repeatedly kicked, punched and hit with expandable metal batons. During the disturbance a person, later identified as Adam Kelly, entered the crowd and attempted to serve as a peacekeeper.
When Kelly began moving away from the large and crowd, law enforcement witnessed a person, later identified as Halupowski, run up behind Kelly and strike him on top of the head with an expandable metal baton, according to the District’s Office.
Police watched as Halupowski collapsed his baton on the ground and concealed it in his pants. He was taken into custody near the intersection of Southwest 3rd Avenue and Southwest Washington Street.
And from Oregon Live:
A 24-year-old man who hit another man over the head with a baton in June during dueling downtown Portland demonstrations was sentenced Friday to nearly six years in prison.
Gage Halupowski pleaded guilty to second-degree assault in connection with the June 29 attack on Adam Kelly outside The Nines Hotel along Southwest Morrison Street. Halupowski was identified as one of several masked, black-clothed demonstrators seen on video hitting and pepper-spraying Kelly after he appeared to come to the aid of another man who’d been attacked during the protests, authorities said.
Kelly, a right-wing protestor at the demonstrations, wrote on Facebook at the time that the blows to his head led to him suffering a concussion and needing 25 staples to close the wounds.
Multnomah County Deputy District Attorney Melissa Marrero said Halupowski hitting Kelly in the back of the head with an expandable baton was “completely unexplainable, completely avoidable and didn’t need to happen.”
She said Kelly and Halupowski both were lucky that Kelly survived his injuries.
Defense attorney Edward Kroll said Halupowski made “a really terrible decision” and that Kelly didn’t deserve what happened to him, but the attorney believed the agreed-upon 70-month prison sentence was “one of the harshest sentences I’ve seen for someone with no criminal background and young age.”
Kroll cited the Measure 11 charges Halupowski faced and the attack being caught on video as leaving the 24-year-old with few options other than taking the plea deal. Kroll also noted that Halupowski hit Kelly once, but it had been determined that at least two other people hit him in the head with batons.
Marrero disagreed with Kroll’s assertions, saying she felt the charges and sentence were appropriate based on the severity of Kelly’s injuries and Halupowski’s strike. She said first-degree assault, which carried a potential 90-month sentence, and riot charges were initially considered in the case.
The prosecutor also said another person has been indicted and more people are under investigation in the same attack and other incidents stemming from the June demonstrations.
“My office has individuals charged on both sides of the political spectrum,” Marrero said. “We are not picking sides based on political affiliation, political views or anything like that.”
Halupowski didn’t give any statements while in court Friday. Kelly sat in the gallery behind him. His bald head bore several scars. He declined to comment after the court hearing.
