Power 107.5

The Hilliard man who has been charged with a hate crime this week for vandalizing a mosque is saying he is sorry.

10TV has been trying to reach out to Todd Williams who was the man caught on the Ahlul-Bayt Society-Islamic Center surveillance camera spray painting the message “Allah Is A Fraud Dum Dums, Repent Turn To True God + Jesus Or Burn 4 Ever” on the front door. Williams was soon found and charged with hate crime, desecration, ethnic intimidation, and criminal mischief by the  Franklin County Grand Jury.

“I didn’t vandalize. I wrote on them to turn back to the true god” Williams said.

The 44-year-old says he understands that all people have a right to choose their own beliefs and knows what he did was wrong.

“I’ll probably have to pay a penalty but it’s not because I hate ’em. I write it on my car for everybody,” he said. “Absolutely I would apologize to them because I feel bad I should have talked to them and not write on there.”
