Livingston man charged with hate crime


November 11, 2013

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.
