Colorado man pleads guilty to stabbing Black man in eastern Oregon hate crime

A Colorado man who stabbed a Black man in the neck because of the victim’s race pleaded guilty Thursday in Eugene to a federal hate crime and could face life in prison, prosecutors said.

Nolan Levi Strauss, 27, pleaded guilty to a hate crime with intent to kill, said Kristen Clarke, assistant attorney general for the Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division.
