The 22-year-old was ordered to remain jailed until his sentencing March 25. City News Service reports he could get up to three years in prison.

In a plea agreement, Laube admitted being associated with the militant Rise Above Movement and assaulting people at a “Make America Great Again” rally in Huntington Beach.

Laube is one of several members of the militant group indicted on charges of inciting violence at California rallies in 2017.
