PORTLAND, Oregon — A Portland man has been accused of threatening a Muslim couple and following them in his car.

50-year-old Fredrick Nolan Sorrell was sentenced Friday to anger management classes, 100 hours of community service and three years of probation.. He pleading no contest in April to two misdemeanor counts of intimidation.

Multnomah County Circuit Judge Benjamin Souede ordered Sorrell to pay a fine of $1,653 and have a discussion with Portland's Muslim community.

Sorrell apologized to the couple during his previous plea hearing, saying they didn't deserve his hateful rant, which occurred in May 2017.

The Oregon chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations will organize Sorrell's discussion with the Muslim community.
