Matthew Heimbach has been sentenced to 38 days in jail after a Louisville judge revoked his probation.

Heimbach, leader of the white nationalist group Traditionalist Worker Party, was charged with misdemeanor harassment in Jefferson District Court after he repeatedly pushed a woman at a Donald Trump campaign rally in Louisville in 2016.

Heimbach pleaded guilty to an amended charge of second-degree disorderly conduct in July 2017, agreeing to attend anger management classes.

The Jefferson County Attorney’s Office moved to revoke Heimbach’s probation after he was charged in Indiana earlier this year.
