remain under Judge Tyner's
jurisdiction for one year.
"He was given the oppor-
tunity to show me he could
change his behavior, but in-
stead, he Violated his proba-
tion," Judge Tyner said.
Mr. Browning failed to
meet the terms of an 18-
month probation by not pay-
ing damages and not repor-
ting to probation officers.
Thomas McGinnas, court-
appointed defense attorney
for Mr. Browning, said his
client was "shocked" at the
sentence. "Mr. Browning's

or Hebrew culture," Mr.
McGinnas said. "He wanted
to get even at what he felt to
be an unfair employment

Mr. McGinnas said he
begged for leniency and
psychiatric help for Mr.
Browning. "My client comes

raised by his grandfather,"
Mr. McGinnas said. "When
his grandfather died, he just

Chain Letter Says
Jews Killed Gentiles

NOAM M.M. NEUSNER

Staff Writer

A

Plymouth business
last week received a
letter claiming that
Jews have poisoned non-
Jews for the last 4,000 years.
The letter was written by
Rose Mokry, a 63-year-old
mother who lives in New
York and who came to the
United States in 1966 from
her native Czechoslovakia.
An official with the
Plymouth business, which is
a branch office of a Japanese
company and employs no
Jews, was disturbed by the
letter's contents and immed-
iately sent it to The Jewish
News. At least one other
Michigan business has
received Mrs. Mokry's letter.
It is unclear how many

letters Mrs. Mokry has sent,
but she has attracted the at-
tention of the United States
Postal Inspection Service,
the District Attorney of New
York and the Anti-
Defamation League of B'nai
B'rith. But Mrs. Mokry's
right to mail the letters is
constitutionally protected,
according to Richard Loben-
thal of the Michigan ADL.
Mrs. Mokry has admitted
in past letters that she ad-
dresses her mail randomly
and also uses random return
addresses. That way, she ex-
plained, someone would
surely read the letter.
The letter says Jews have
corrupted medicine, using it
to poison and sterilize non-
Jews. Plus, Mrs. Mokry
writes that Jews controlled,
via their "non-Jewish prosti-
tutes in the secret services of
