White supremacist charged with sexual misconduct

– Richland County deputies have charged an avowed white supremacist with second-degree criminal sexual conduct against a female relative under the age of 12.

Sheriff Leon Lott said 59-year-old August Byron Kreis III sexually assaulted the girl and showed her pornography.

Kreis was once the leader of the Aryan Nations and sought out national attention, appearing on The Jerry Springer Show on an episode called “A Racist Family.”

He served six months in jail in 2011 after pleading guilty to taking $193,000 in a need-based military pension, but failing to report other income. When he pleaded guilty, he was in a wheelchair because of several amputations from diabetes.

It isn’t known if Kreis has a lawyer. He remains in jail.
