Racist Stickers in Brighton Traced to UR Student

A University of Rochester student from Maryland has been charged with three counts of violating Brighton Town Code by affixing advertising to public buildings.

Brighton Police say 23-year-old Christopher Hodgman of Bethesda, Maryland placed three white supremacist stickers around Brighton last fall. Brighton Police Chief Mark Henderson says they tracked him down through fingerprints left on the adhesive on the stickers.

Smith said an attack on some members of the community is an attack on all.

The University of Rochester says the stickers posted in Brighton were associated with Identity Evropa ("europa"), a white nationalist organization identified by the Southern Poverty Law Center as a hate group.

The University says it's made clear its commitment to diversity, inclusion and respect.....and it condemns acts of hatred or intimidation.
