The Nation

David Dorr, the ringleader of a white supremacy group that launched a series of bombings that rocked Coeur d’Alene, Ida., in September, 1986, was sentenced in Boise, Ida., to up to 20 years in prison. Two other members of The Order were sentenced to eight years in prison, but a third defendant was placed on probation. Deborah Dorr, 36, Dorr’s wife, and Edward Hawley, 24, were both ordered to jail. Hawley’s wife, Olive, 29, was given a six-year prison sentence, but it was suspended to five years’ probation. The Order was a violent offshoot of the white supremacist Aryan Nations organization at Hayden Lake, Ida. The four defendants were indicted by a federal grand jury earlier this year on counts of racketeering, conspiracy, counterfeiting, bombing, illegal possession of automatic weapons and malicious destruction of federal property. The defendants all pleaded guilty.
