RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - A Virginia man accused of plotting to shoot up or bomb synagogues and black churches has been sentenced to eight years and nine months in prison.

The Richmond Times-Dispatch reports (https://bit.ly/1U7b9sq ) that Ronald Chaney III was sentenced Tuesday by U.S. District Court Judge James R. Spencer. Chaney pleaded guilty in March to robbery conspiracy and firearm charges.

Prosecutors say Chaney and a co-conspirator, Robert Doyle, are white supremacists who were arrested after buying guns and explosives from undercover agents. An FBI affidavit said the men and another defendant conspired to rob a silver and coin dealer and use the money to finance a race war.

Chaney blamed his crimes Tuesday on “stupidity, impulsiveness and impatience.”

Doyle was sentenced to 17 ½ years in prison.
