The Department of Justice (DOJ) recommended zero jail time for Maeve Nota, a 31-year-old transgender individual who vandalized the St. Louise Catholic Church in Bellevue last June in response to the Supreme Court’s overturn of Roe v. Wade, according to FOX News.

Nota was accused of leaving several anti-Christian messages on the church, including, according to Bellevue Police, “women haters,” “rot in your fake [expletive],” “abusers,” “kid [expletive],” “we hate women,” “kid groomers,” and “we hate gay people.”

A church staff member was reportedly spray-painted in the face while attempting to chase Nota away from the premises.

According to FOX News, President Joe Biden’s Justice Department originally hit Nota with a charge of destruction of religious property — a misdemeanor that possesses $100,000 in fines and up to a year of jail time. But a week later, the plea agreement between the Justice Department and Nota now recommends no jail time.

The agreement reportedly settled for three years of probation.

Nota additionally claimed to have used a backpack full of spray paint cans to smash the police vehicle before turning themself in.

Attacks on churches and pro-life pregnancy centers have increased markedly in the last few years. CatholicVote has tracked these attacks, charting 147 attacks against churches since the Supreme Court leak overturning Roe v. Wade, while documenting 309 attacks have occurred over the last three years.
