5 years in race attack

April 01, 1991

A 21-year-old man has been sentenced to five years in jail for a racially motivated attack in Highlandtown last year. Daniel Porter was sentenced to 15 years, with all but five suspended, for the July attack on Herbert E. Jennings, a black man who was walking with his white girlfriend. City Circuit Court Judge Robert I.H. Hammerman also sentenced Porter to four years for reckless endangerment and three years for racial harassment, to be served concurrently with the assault sentence. Jennings was severely injured when he was chased into the path of a truck.
