No jail time for army vet that attacked gay couple

By John Mack Freeman

During the 2012 Pride parade in Austin, Texas Lambert Borgardt attacked  Andrew Oppleman and Nick Soret. Oppelman lost five teeth and Soret’s nose was fractured. Last week, Lambert Borgardt was found guilty of two counts of aggravated assault and was sentenced to 10 years probation and 200 hours of community service. The grand jury did not indict Borgardt for a hate crime. There is still another charge against Borgardt pending that may increase his complete lack of jail time.
