From LA Times Staff and Wire Reports

Charges were filed Tuesday against Adonis Irwin, 32, the suspect arrested Friday and alleged to have glued printouts of swastikas and two rambling messages on the door of Councilman Jack Weiss' Sherman Oaks office last week.

One of the messages implied that Weiss was a Nazi. He is Jewish.

City Atty. Rocky Delgadillo charged Irwin with one count of vandalism, one count of posting a swastika on private property and one hate crime charge. Irwin could face up to three years in prison and $11,000 in fines if convicted.

The Sherman Oaks man pleaded not guilty at an arraignment Tuesday. He is being held on $175,000 bail; trial has been scheduled for June 1.
