A transgender perpetrator who admitted to vandalizing a Catholic church and assaulting a worker was offered a plea deal from Biden's Department of Justice that recommended no jail time.
Maeve Nota, a 31-year-old individual who identifies as transgender, admitted to vandalizing St. Louise Catholic Church in Bellevue, Washington, by spray-painting graffiti, shattering doors, destroying a statue of the Virgin Mary, and assaulting a member of the church staff.
Nota spray-painted the outside of the church with profane and offensive messages, including "F*** Catholics," "rot in your fake hell," "kid groomers," "religion of hate," "rapists," and "woman haters."
Surveillance footage from the incident captured Nota kicking and smashing the two glass doors with a rock.
Nota attempted to flee the scene when followed by a church employee. Nota admitted to spray-painting the worker's face during the chase. The employee also reported being hit by a rock thrown by the vandal.
According to police, when authorities attempted to arrest Nota, who they stated appeared intoxicated, the perp used a backpack filled with spray-paint cans to smash the police cruiser.
At the time of the incident, Bellevue Police Captain Darryl McKinney stated that Nota's vandalism, estimated to have caused $100,000 in damages, would be considered a hate crime. As a result, authorities said Nota could face a felony charge for assault.
March court filings revealed that the DOJ charged Nota with the destruction of religious property, a misdemeanor that could result in a year in prison and up to $100,000 in fines.
However, a previously unreported plea agreement revealed that the DOJ offered Nota no jail time and three years of probation instead. Nota will be sentenced in June.
Mike Davis, founder of the Article III Project, told Fox News Digital, "It is very clear that the Biden Justice Department has politicized and weaponized the FACE Act to go after pro-life Christians praying outside of abortion clinics like Mark Houck while turning a blind eye to violent felons terrorizing and badly damaging Catholic churches like Maeve Nota."
Houck was arrested at gunpoint by the FBI after he shoved a Planned Parenthood "escort" who repeatedly tried to antagonize him and his son in October 2021.
"The Biden Justice Department tried to put Houck in prison for 11 years for defending his son while recommending no jail time for Nota after this deranged trans terrorist badly damaged a Catholic church, fought with the police, assaulted a church employee, and scared the hell out of a little old lady praying," Davis added.
The DOJ did not respond to a request for comment, Fox News Digital reported.
