Man convicted of displaying noose, re-sentenced

A man convicted of intimidating his neighbors by displaying a noose and dummy in his front yard is gong back to jail. 

Jack Turner was allowed out on good behavior; however, he did not follow orders. 

In 2009, a state law passed, making it a felony to hang a noose to intimidate a person.  Turner is the only person to be convicted since this became law.

While awaiting sentencing, Turner put a sign out in his yard saying "Black n***** lives don't matter. Got rope?"

He was sentenced to five years in jail with all but six months suspended, but that if he harassed his neighbors in any way, he would be sent back.

His neighbor said during that time, she noticed that spit was showing up on her mailbox.
