Wisconsin Man Gets 7.5 Years for Arson at Pro-Life Office

A man from Wisconsin was sentenced to seven-and-a-half years in federal prison for setting fire to an office of a group that supports life before birth, the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) shared. The man, who is 29 years old and named Hridindu Sankar Roychowdhury from Madison, was found guilty of throwing a Molotov cocktail at the office because it was against abortion, the DOJ stated.

The arson attack happened in May 2022, and law enforcement officers discovered evidence like a burnt jar and spray-painted messages on the office walls. The man was identified through surveillance footage and DNA found at the scene. He was arrested in March 2023 at an airport while trying to leave the country, and he pleaded guilty in December of the same year.

The organization that owned the office, Wisconsin Family Action (WFA), wanted a longer sentence for the man. The president emeritus of the group expressed disappointment in the judge’s decision to give a shorter prison term. The current president of WFA mentioned that many people supported the man in court, which shows a concerning lack of respect for the law.
