LIVINGSTON (AP) — A Livingston man is charged with a hate crime after prosecutors say he directed racial insults at a Hispanic man, attacked him and then struck him with a vehicle.
The Livingston Enterprise reports (http://bit.ly/1bl2ziP) Park County Attorney Brett Linneweber charged 34-year-old Robert "Todd" Kelsey with aggravated assault and malicious intimidation related to civil or human rights.
Court records say the victim suffered a fractured skull and eye socket along with internal injuries in the Oct. 22 attack.
Prosecutors say Kelly's vehicle had blood on it and damage consistent with hitting a person.
Kelsey also faces the revocation of a five-year suspended sentence for a 2007 burglary in Park County. A hearing on that matter is scheduled for Tuesday. Kelsey was released from prison in January.
